This quaint street is teeming with artists offering their art. The art was actually very good and all relate to the area. It would be a great souvenir if it fit in your motif at home. It's not that long, so 10 minutes would be ample unless you are buying are an artist yourself.

As I walked through this passageway filled on both sides with displays of original art, I thought I probably couldn't buy or bring home anything, but it turned out I bought a small black and white silk screen of the Chateau Drontenac for only 5$ and it looks much richer than that. There is no pressure from the artists and... More

A diverse collection of artists show off their talent every day rain or shine. Different styles and price ranges should work for anyone looking to take home a little piece of Quebec.

Walked by the alleyway a few times and it was very crowded, but got lucky and was able to walk through and look at the art for sale during a lull. It was very confusing - some of the art is very expensive (well over $100) and some of it is priced for tourists (3 for $20). I could tell... More

We enjoyed the work of local artists that was on display in this small alley. It's only a block long and is right near Notre Dame and the Chateau Frontenac. You can get some nice deals on artist prints and there is plenty of original work too. You will find a pretty wide range of prices here, but it's worth... More

Some interesting artists but a bit over-rated - worth checking out if nearby but when we saw it, we felt it was a bit tourist.
