Great place to see some of the local artists on display. The prices are high for the works of art although some prints can be sold in a package for a better price.

Short, skinny street full of art. Mostly pictures of Quebec City. It was crowded with tourists in late May. Most of the art was duplications of the original piece and therefore very inexpensive. Not sure it was even the artist doing the selling. It made for a good photo opportunity, but we weren't tempted to buy any of it. Won't... More

We enjoyed strolling down this alley and viewing all of the art from watercolor to oils and copper etchings. Several artists had 'agents' or friends to sell their art, and other artists reprinted themselves. Most had paintings or prints of Quebec City. A fun cultural experience.

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...
