La Porte Saint Louis, ainsi nommée en l'honneur du Roi Louis IX, fait face à l'actuel bassin Vauban. Elle fut percée dans la courtine lors du troisième accroissement de 1721, et n'a été ouverte qu'en 1874 pour rapprocher du port le quartier de la rue de Toulouse, la plus longue des rues de l'intra-muros. Elle permettait ainsi de faciliter l'accès des passagers anglais, qui débarquaient alors sur le quai Saint-Louis.



The Porte Saint Louis, so named in honour of King Louis IX, faces the current pond Vauban. It was drilled in the curtain during the third increase of 1721, and was opened only in 1874 to move closer to the port to the ward of the  street of Toulouse, the longest of the streets of the intramural. It so allowed to facilitate the access of the English passengers, who off-loaded then on the quay Saint Louis.
