Venture into du Couvent Street


The Judeo-Christian heritage remains omnipresent in the city of Montreal and in Quebec's imagination. Why not take a detour into du Couvent Street to admire the majestic St-Henri Church, now converted to a different use. In this street a beautiful variety of small houses remain, as pretty as they are colourful.

Du Couvent Street is notable for its original residential architecture. Indeed, it is populated with small colourful houses that have preserved their charm of yesteryear. Take a moment to wander on foot and admire the residences full of character facing the Ludger-Duvernay Elementary School courtyard, where children enjoy themselves during the school year. Continue your journey.

Walking towards St. Antoine Street, the neo-barroque facade of the imposing and old St-Henri church, now converted into Hotel des Encans, will catch your eye. Now frequented by collectors and auction enthusiasts, the building still has its remarkable central tower, curiously located between two small towers. With a mixture of religious and urban heritage, and vestiges of everyday life, the quiet rue du Couvent is a greta place to take a walk.
