This is a long street with interesting architecture, restaurants, galleries and tourist traps. It is home to l’hôtel Nelligan and brings you to the beautiful Place Jacques Cartier at the east end. Worth a walk!

A pleasant street to walk with many interesting shops and restaurants, although significant construction was going on during our recent visit. In summer this is a very busy area in the Old Quarter.

there is a small lot on the street itself. If you get there before 8 there is parking. Pay the attendant. The easiest, park on Sherbrook, car is safe there and walk down the 10 minutes.
