Latin Quarter (Quartier Latin) Tours

Located just south of artsy, boho-chic Plateau Mont-Royal, the Latin Quarter has been a center of student life since the 18th century. Now home to one of the largest universities in the country, its name doesn’t exactly come as a surprise; the neighborhood is filled with students, bookstores and inexpensive cafés with exceptional people watching opportunities. It is known for its many theatres, artistic atmosphere, lively restaurants, microbreweries and whisky bars, as well as independently-owned boutiques.

The best thing about the Latin Quarter is undeniably its eclectic crowd and its joie de vivre: both the wealthy and the not-so-wealthy, the local and the ethnic, the artistic and the intellectual mingle on the streets, be it during a summer festival or while queuing to get hot chocolate. Definitely a multi-layer neighborhood if there ever was one! One of the main attraction of the area, outside its buzzing nightlife, is the Grande bibliothèque du Québec. A feat of architecture and a splendid building in itself, it is the most popular library in all of the French-speaking world, with over 2 million visitors every year. It is home to over one million items, spread across 33,000 square meters.

Practical Info

The Latin Quarter is located in downtown Montreal. It can be accessed by public transit via metro Berri-UQAM and buses 15 – 125 or by car. The nearest parking lots are located at 1550 Berri St and 1601 Sanguinet St. There are also several BIXI bike sharing stations close by.
