Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

St. Louis Gate (Porte St. Louis) is one of several gates in Quebec which still has well preserved fortifications. Walking through the gate and around the fortifications is a good way of finding out more about the city.

If walking through this gate while watching people walking on top you can understand how this gate was part of the fortification system. This entrance leads into Rue Saint-Louis which has many shops and restaurants. It is also a direct path to the Chateau Frontenac.
There is nothing like this in the City of Saint Louis.

This is a beautiful sight to see when driving into Old Quebec City. Once you get through the gates it is sometimes hard to find a parking spot so I suggest parking inside at the old city Hall for maximum of $18 a day. Your car will be nice and warm when you you finish your tour of Old Quebec, even if that is for 2 hour or two days or even longer!

If you want the feel of traveling to France on this continent, go to Quebec City. Quaint shops, beautiful parks, delicious food are all here. And try poutine for the experience. Visit the only English library housed in an old jail

Interesting aspect of Old Quebec--that it was (and is) a city surrounded by a wall and this gate is a beautiful example of the entry way to the old town. It is simply a gate from the "French" era and architecturally attractive.

This is the prettiest entrance to the old city. It is really impressive and a place where you will want to take a photo. And you will enter on a major street with lots of restaurants and old buildings.

i love the way in which old Quebec city has been lovingly cherished, maintained and restored. This gate serves as an exclamation point to the importance and unique place QC has in our minds and our history.

Step into Old Quebec and see the architecture of the old city walls. This particular gate is probably the most photographed and for good reason! You don't need to spend a lot of time there and it is not a long detour to get there so it is definitely worth your time!
