Scenic but not authentic.

cool to walk and see. Unfortunately, these are not the original. Still, cool architecture and they fit the mood of the city very well.

Just going by the Rue St.Jean toward the east and Chateau de Frontenac, I had reached to this gate in the one end of the Rue St. Louis. This street St.Louis is rather narrow with some larger than usual sidewalks at the certain sections of the street. On both sides, there are the old stone houses, that remind You on... More

It is a wonderful entrance to Canada's historical past. The gate has such wonderful architecturial features that you can just imagine youself back in time. You will also find the horse drawn carriage tours where a driver can explain more about the beautiful walled city of Quebec.

Though not one of the older historical sights this is interesting to see as you travel through the walls. Obviously the brief time it takes to get from one side of the wall to the other is the extent of the view. One of many interesting, briefly seen sights as you travel this interesting city.

The Porte Saint-Louis was built in 1878 is one of the main gates leading to the City. It is a nice historic site.

We walked through this gate many times during our week long stay in Old Quebec. There three entrances to Old Quebec through the stone walls-this being one of them. It brings you to many excellent restaurants and shops. Fun. Fun, Fun!!!!!

This is the kind of stuff that makes Quebec City such a cool place to visit. The walls encircle most of the city and this is one of the fancier entry points.

On our walking tour of the high city (hauteville), we followed the city walls from the Citadel and came across the gate just north of the entrance to the Citadel. It is a major route into the old city. Not much to see, just a good photo op. If you follow the road fro mthe gate into the old city,... More
