Good photo location. But really why would the average tourist know which gate is what, except to remember how to go back the way they came from.

It is a bit of a misnomer that this is a walled city as the there are gaps and you are not really able to walk the perimeter. where you can get up there and go for a walk, some great views.

This is a good site to see near the old city. It's the old wall and there are interesting signs posted about the area.

One of a number of gateways into town, hop on hop off passes close by, it is a fine looking structure, give the impression it would have been difficult to pass through in past days.

The St. Louis Gate is still Part of the walled city of Quebec. Great for taking pictures as everything around it is also historic.

Nice to see work being done to maintain the old city walls. The area being restored is just down from the Grand Allée and is well boarded so nobody can get hurt.

We were on a guided walking tour and spent time at the gate with the guide, learning about the history of the gate. There is also a small kiosk with photos and maps of the history of the gate. An informational and interesting visit.

It is very nice to see the walls around the city still in tact and being kept up by the city. The gates are nice for pictures and attract lots of buskers since they are funnels that everyone has to pass through.

Beautiful piece of architecture. You do not want to visit Quebec City and not see this. It is on the way to la Citadelle de Quebec. Take a stroll, there is so much to see here.
