This gate reminds us of our history. Stately, yet not imposing. When we drive through this gate, the charm of it extends to all of the Old City.

Very interesting to see something like this in North America. People playing musical instruments on the sidewalk. Quite a nice entry way into a historical part of Quebec City.
