Saint Paul Street (Rue Saint-Paul)
Saint Paul Street (Rue Saint-Paul), located in Montreal’s Old Port, is an historic stretch of cafes, boutiques, galleries, and souvenir shops. Constructed in 1672, Saint Paul is the oldest street in the city and home to a few of its top landmarks, including Bonsecours Market and Notre-Dame-de-Bon-Secours Chapel.

The Basics
As a main thoroughfare in Montreal’s historic district, Saint Paul Street is a highlight on most Old Port walking tours, which also often include Place Jacques-Cartier, Notre-Dame Basilica, and the St. Lawrence riverfront. Private tours offer a more flexible alternative, allowing visitors to add a stroll or bite to eat on Saint Paul Street a customized itinerary. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Saint Paul Street is a must for boutique shoppers and history buffs.
  • Don’t forget comfortable, flat walking shoes, as the best way to explore the neighborhood—which is partially paved with cobblestones—is on foot.
  • Street signs, including parking and traffic signs, are written in French.
  • Visit popular restaurants after the lunch rush to avoid notoriously long lines.

How to Get There
Saint Paul Street is located in the Old Port neighborhood and is easily accessible using Montreal’s public transit system. The nearest Metro stations are Square-Victoria and Place-d’Armes, or take bus 61 to McGill and Saint Paul, bus 55 to Notre Dame and Saint Sulpice, or bus 68 to Nazareth and William. A BIXI bike share docks is located on the corner of McGill Street and d’Youville Place.

When to Get There
As one of the Old Port’s main attractions, Saint Paul Street is busiest on weekends. Go on a weekday morning for a quieter stroll. From late May to mid September, Saint Paul Street is pedestrian-only between St. Laurent Street and Bonsecours Market.

Place Jacques-Cartier
Nowhere is Montreal’s European atmosphere more evident than at Place Jacques-Cartier, a public square flanked to the south by Saint Paul Street. With its cobblestone streets, artists and buskers, and outdoor eateries, Place Jacques-Cartier is a popular destination for visitors and locals alike. During the summer, the square is pedestrian-only.
