Color on the Carré Saint-Louis
The Carré Saint-Louis (also known as St. Louis Square) is one of Montréal's most important literary streetscapes. Famed Québecois poets Émile Nelligan and Gaston Miron called this home. Brightly painted Victorian/Second Empire graystone rowhouses line the square—one of the best leafy spaces in the city. (It's been called "the closest thing to a European neighborhood square you'll find this side of the Atlantic" by the Project for Public Spaces.) A few blocks away is the fabled Schwartz's Deli. Grab a "smoked meat" to go, then come here to chow down by the fountain, surrounded by trees and 19th-century façades. (The nearest subway is Sherbrooke station on the Orange Line.)
