A most pleasing area in the older more characterful quarter - so I am told. We enjoyed a stroll around the square taking in the excellent range of early last century houses on display - all replete with as much design and character as you...More

I had to walk through here every day to get to the metro. It's really peaceful. The coloured houses are definitely worth a visit. Very early morning or in the evening felt safe enough.

I like going to the St. Lous Square from time to time when I am visiting the neighborhood for good food and other cultural activities. The Quebec Writers' House is located on Laval Street and all the houses around the square replicating solid victorian architecture...More

Nice park and fountain. Surrounded by houses built more than a century ago. Quiet, yet adjacent to Sherbrooke and St. Denis Streets and all they have to offer.

Right near the Sherbrooke Metro stop on St Denis street, this is a gen - shady and lovely, with a fountain. A restful spot in a busy, trendy neighborhood.

Visit day or night. The gorgeous cast iron fountain sits on top of the former water reservoir for the city. The park is surrounded by lovely stone houses and some of the trees are over 100 years old. It's a very romantic place. Stroll down...More

If you are looking for shade on a very hot day, this park has it. Close to Metro Mont-Royal it is nice park to take your animal and or to go for a nice walk and read a book

Grand old Victorian houses surround the square. Squirrels pester you for handouts. Maybe the best time to go is on a summer or fall evening, when some of the buskers are playing music. Once, a South American group was playing its heart out: magical!

This is a one of a kind square. It is completely surrounded by gorgeous Victorian homes. It was bright in a dull winter day. It also leads directly onto Rue St. Denis which is full of shops and cafes. Worth a visit

city's most diverse and distinctly authentic
experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite
pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young
painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from
the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that
