This street used to provide access to the Royal Treasure, and it's where the colonists ventured to pay their yearly taxes. The cobbled street now plays host to an open-air gallery—it moved from a hub of commerce to art in the 1960s when two young artists, Pierre Lussier and Harry Merlou, hung their works from what was then a quiet pedestrian area. Today, Rue du Tresor houses works from a wide variety of artists. Come here to buy everything from souvenirs to fine art from burgeoning artists—this area is undoubtedly a city landmark.
