During the 60's, Prince-Arthur Street was “the” hippie haven in Montréal. Today a favourite among pedestrian streets, it is extremely lively during summer. Street artists and musicians add character to this restaurant and café-terrasse strewn neighbourhood. Prince-Arthur Street leads to the architecturally rich Square Saint-Louis with its imposing 19th century homes. Attracting well-to-do French-Canadian families to the area in the early 1800s, number of artists also made their homes around Square Saint-Louis, including renowned poet Émile Nelligan.
