Le Sud-Ouest (Southwest District)
Once the core of industrialized Montreal, the
factories and historic buildings of Le Sud-Ouest have
been renovated into homes, museums, and small
businesses. The rejuvenated landscape has put its
Saint-Henri district in vogue, with cutting-edge
galleries and an ever-expanding network of
restaurants. Foodies can especially delight in the
mom-and-pop shops in Little Burgundy, or at the
