Rue du Trésor

3) Rue du Trésor (must see)

This year-round gallery is one of the most famous in Quebec City, displaying plenty of artists and artwork. The artists will talk to you all day long, but there is no pressure to buy – but since prices are good, you can actually buy a piece of Quebec to take home. The gallery was created in the 1960s by student artists who decided to exhibit their works in order to promote them to the public, as well as to make their works available for sale.

Why You Should Visit:
This quaint little street packed with artists is one of the more atmospheric in Quebec City. The art is hit-or-miss but the street itself is worth seeking out.

Tip:
Do not take photos of artwork as the artists are very protective of their work being copied, and rightfully so. Note, also, that not all vendors take credit cards.
