Yes this is where they took the photos for the postcards of Nontreal's distinctive old houses with the brightly painted gables and balconies. The best view is to be had from Place St Louis - Rue Laval comes off it. You can reach it fairly easily by walking from the downtown down Sherbrooke: the area has a good atmosphere with... More

Living 6 to 7 months per year in Montreal, whenever I have to go somewhere in that region of the Plateau Mont Royal I choose this street to walk on.

This street in the Plateau Montreal is one of the most beautiful to stroll. It also has some fantastic B & B in a great Montreal neighbourhood. Especially around Laval and Duluth Street

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the 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 dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colourful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
