We ended up buying two paintings from this area. Many artists are selling watercolors, drawings, and paintings. Nice place to wonder about.

Maybe it was the time of year, March, but there were very few artists and not much artwork. I would not go out of my way to put this on the travel agenda unless you are traveling during a more touristy season.

Charming alley walk squeezed between buildings and streets with displays of artwork for sale - mostly of Old Quebec. Wide range of prices. Great little restaurant faces the Rue de Tresor with outdoor seating, heaters and market umbrellas.

A visit to Quebec City is incomplete without a stroll on Rue du Tresor ... the outdoor art gallery. The artisans display their works (mostly watercolours) along the walls of the street. They are chatty and work their sales pitch into their friendly banter. Don't...More

We came during Carnaval, and there weren't a lot of vendors here (called "du tresor", as "rue due tresor" is by the Fairmont Chateau de Frontenac). But loved seeing the different styles. It's a short street, and the artists are very motivated to tell you...More

When we travel, we purchase local art on the sites we have visited. Local artists need our support and the real art (not just prints) make great conversation pieces when people visit. The art always reminds us of how fortunate we have been to travel,...More

I and a couple of friends rented a loft on this street, allowing us to enjoy different aspects of this charming area, night and day. There are cozy restaurants, small boutiques which resemble Paris in its main features. Lovely place.

Took a stroll down the street to look at the art. Stopped to view a nice work and had a long conversation with the artist. Nice little diversion.

You will probably walk across this narrow street in the busiest part of the Old Town. Don’t bother unless you like these very predictable images to bring back as souvenirs. If you take your time, you will find nicers gifts to buy.

Greetings! The Quebec City train station stop is close to Old Quebec. It is a doable walk, bus or cab ride from the station if the weather is fine. Of course, that is dependent upon where in Old Quebec one is staying. We... More
