One of 3 gates built to protect the walked city of Old Quebec. As beautiful as the gates are during the day, they are more spectacular at night.

Glomping around Old Quebec the portals say I’ve gone too far. Time to turn around and continue exploring the alley ways and promenades, sit in cafes and a friendly bar.
