So we walked through this alley way a couple of times during our trip to Quebec City. It was really slow in April. There was only three people set up. The pricing was ok, but a tad expensive.

The Rue du Tresor is a cute little alley full of paintings! In the summer it's very lively, with the walls full and lots of people milling about. There are lots of little restaurants and patios nearby. Some of the artists sell smaller works that would be great presents or souvenirs. We went on a Saturday afternoon but many of... More

Amazing from mid-March to mid-October with many painters and exhibits, It was too cold for that. Nice cafés near-by.

Atmospheric walk whilst viewing all the artworks - from basic to expensive. Conveniently located near tourist office and Chateaux Frontenac. I purchased a lovely copper etching tryptic which I will frame as a wonderful memento of my time in magical Quebec City. There is certainly no undue pressure to buy - just enjoy the artworks.

Swing through and look at the art of Old Quebec City... Nice etchings, prints and watercolors in different styles all in one place. Good alternative to postcards

If you are already visiting Old Quebec City, then definitely stop by - it's just one small alley way full of really talented and artistic vendors...

The stalls line this narrow pedestrian street displaying the work of local artists. Much of the art is themed on locations in and around Quebec City which make for great keepsakes of a special trip. Those manning the booths (not always the artists) are very informative if you take the time to ask about a process or a piece you... More

Many artists sell paintings and drawings on this street. I bought a beautiful watercolor. It's a good place to get local art at reasonable prices

Quebec City has SO much to offer and to see. This is one on a long list. Its a relatively small area of artists and their paintings, typically water paints. The prices are not too bad in comparison to other spots we've seen in other cities.

If you're looking for a souvenir less tacky than the usual t-shirt or mug, try coming down and meeting some local artists. You can take a piece of Quebec home with you for a reasonable price and meet the people who make the art. The church next to the street also has booths where artisans are showing off wares such...
