directions_walkGolden Square Mile
The Golden Square Mile is historically known for its mansions built on the slopes of Mount Royal and Sherbrooke Street West from the mid 1800's thru the 1920's. It's also home to the old Royal Victoria Hospital, The Montreal General Hospital, McGill University, Concordia University, the McCord Museum and the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts. There is great architecture here and beautiful streets. This walk is also a good workout, as you will be going up and down streets on the slopes of Mount Royal. Bordered on the north by Pine Avenue, to the south by René-Lévesque, to the west by Guy Street and to the east by University Street.
There are so many buildings to see - we have only shown a handful.
