Parc du Portugal , Rue Marie-Anne et, Boul. Saint-Laurent, Montréal, QC H2W 1Z8, Canada
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.

This was one of the highlights of our 3 days in Montreal! Although it was a hot day, and we are in our 70's, Sara made the 2 hours fly by with her vast knowledge, engaging personality and interactive style. The murals were beautiful and it was fascinating to learn about each artist's process and motivation. Saving the great list of "Go to Spots" distributed at the end of the tour for next time!

Our guide was very knowledgeable about the history of each mural & the mural festival overall! Really made the tour to be interactive; all questions & our thoughts on pieces were welcomed. She clearly enjoys the murals, learning about the artists, sharing the information & doing the tour! Threw in add’l info on the green alleys & mural artist painting on a little lending library along the walk. Better than I could have anticipated. So much info in 2 hours!
