Au-dessus de cette porte cochère se trouve la pierre de la Croix de Malte. En 1647, Charles Huault de Montmagny, chevalier de l'Ordre de Malte, premier gouverneur et lieutenant général de la Nouvelle-France, la fait placer sur le Château Saint-Louis. En 1892, au début de la construction du Château Frontenac, la pierre est placée au-dessus d'une porte piétonne. Elle trouvera son emplacment actuel en 1920, au moment de l'érection de la tour centrale.
Cette plaque fut dévoilée le 27 novembre 2002 par Jean-Paul L'Allier, maire de Québec et France Gagnon Pratte, historienne de l'architecture, afin de commémorer le 380e anniversaire de l'ordination de Charles Huault de Montmagny, sacré Chevalier de la Croix de Malte en 1622.
