Want to see street art on a different route that IS running now? Check out our Beyond the Basilica tour. The last half admires at least 12 massive murals and the first half shows you much more of Montréal. This way!
Over the last four years Saint-Laurent boulevard has been transformed into the country’s premier street art corridor. Since the creation of the first MURAL Festival, our city, and rightly so, has become a world leader in public art.
Shortly after the founding of Montreal, the Main became an important dividing line between east and west. Thanks to the growing immigrant communities along the thoroughfare, the artery ironically created a gathering point for all citizens. Today, centuries later, these works of art are once again grouping locals and visitors, homebred artists and international, to congregate in the middle of where it all began. Spade & Palacio in collaboration with the MURAL Festival bring you the Official Montréal MURAL Tour, a vibrant and historic walk along Saint-Laurent.
