Not one of the pretty ports or entrances to the old city, so not a good place for photos. Not recommended for the tourist.

Just a normal pedestrian overpass built of stones linking lower and upper town in front of the nice Old Post Office building. This is an alternative passageway for people going uphill instead of the funicular cable car ride. The park next to it is more attractive because of the fall foliage.

This is not an impressive looking gate at all. It looks just like a pedestrian overpass built with stones. The fact that it is located next to Escalier Frontenac means that you will see it whether you like it or not on the way to/from Escalier Casse-Cou (Breakneck Staircase) which leads to the Lower Town.

Porte Prescott was re-built and widened in the 1980s to allow 2 way traffic on Cote de la Montagne. This grey concrete brick gateway consists of a connecting bridge, slightly curved for effect, which joins 2 towers set on either side of the road. Pedestrians using the sidewalk walk through the opening in these towers. It is another optional route that visitors in Lower Canada can take to reach Upper Quebec at the Laval Statue. The city gate is named after Robert Prescott who was the British Governor from 1796-1799 when the original gate was built.

Unlike the other 3 gates into Quebec City, the Porte Prescott lacks charm. It is a functional gate. No need to go out of your way to take a photo of it.
