Their website is in French. I wish I knew how to have accessed this as I walked through this gate several times a day. Rue St Jean is active with shops and restaurants but we discovered that so MUCH more opened on the weekend. Despite a great deal of research done before this trip, that was missed. Considering we stayed tues-sun it was kind of disappointing. Also off season - lots of very cold slushy walks. Saw many interesting things, great food and kind people - the trip was a success but in the summertime this place must be mind blowing.

Like Porte St. Louis, this is another gate through the wall into the Old City via Rue St. Jean, which has many interesting shops and restaurants available. Also lighted at night, very impressive. Be prepared for a hilly walk on cobblestones.

The largest of the three western gates, it is the most northerly. It was from where the Chemin du Roy started in 1734. Parc de l’Artillerie is to the north.

Porte Saint-Jean is one of the many Gates of the fortifications around old Quebec. It is not really as impressive as some others, but worth a look if you happen to be nearby. Saint-Jean is a lovely street and it is full of restaurants and all kinds of fantastic shops. It's great to walk up and down and enjoy the atmosphere.

One of the many ports, or entrances, to the old and upper city. Not as decorative as others. But full of like and lots of food places around.

Rue Saint Jean is a busy popular street full of restaurants and stores (and tourists). On this Saturday they had the road closed to cars, making it a "pedestrian only" street, making it even more enjoyable.

The view from the old gate is pretty. Go up onto the wall and it will eventually take you to the Citafel, and from there you descend several ties of well built, wide stairs down to the Terrasse Differen.
