What To Expect

Shortly after the founding of Montreal, the Main became a dividing line between the east and west sides of the city. The artery transformed into a gathering point for all citizens, thanks in part to the immigrant communities that developed along the thoroughfare. As an epicenter, the area has attracted mural artists locally and from abroad.

 Embark on this walking tour to discover the murals in this area that reflect Montreal’s history and culture. Since the creation of the first MURAL Festival, Saint-Laurent Boulevard has turned into the country’s premier street art corridor.
