interesting alley of artisan's works

this was only half open when we were there (presumably because of the time of year). very nice original works of art for sale from a number of artists all along the short alley.

It was during an exchange program to Quebec City as a young teen over 40 years ago that I first became acquainted with Rue du Tresor. Every since then, no trip to Quebec City would be complete without a walk or two down this historic sweet little street. It doesn't matter what time of year, and in any kind of... More

We are not big shoppers but wanted to see the artistic work on this short, covered section downtown. The work was lovely and seemed moderately priced. I cannot manage crowds so when 5 cruise ships were in port the same day....ew!

This is a narrow alley that has been populated by sellers of art, such as you might find in a tourist gallery. I saw several who had coloured in pre-printed outlines of cityscapes using watercolour, and then selling them as original art. Not what I was expecting from the promotional literature.

What a great idea to let local artists exhibit their works in this nicely set-up, narrow outdoor alley, located across the small park in front of the Château Frontenac. When strolling the winding streets in Old Quebec, make sure not to skip this little treasure, even if it is only to soak up some of that delightful atmosphere. The artists... More
