This neighbourhood of the merged city has undergone a renewal over the last few years. In fact, this neighbourhood is no longer the “poor” area of the city. The Nouvo Saint-Roch, the part of the neighbourhood that is enclosed around Saint-Joseph Street, presents a number of trendy boutiques, like Benjo the games boutique, or the Mountain Equipment Coop. Nearby, the Saint-Roch Garden, which has entirely been revitalized, invites you to stop during your day for a picnic in an oasis in the heart of downtown.
A little farther, well sheltered by the surrounding boutiques, the majestic Saint-Roch Church has stood the test of time. At the end of the street is the Barberie, a little and charming microbrewery. At the other end of the street is the Gabrielle-Roy library, where hundreds of books await you. To the north, the new cycling path that runs along the Saint-Charles River will make you feel like you are kilometres from the city. A cinema, a theatre room as well as the Victoria Park complete the attractions of this neighbourhood.
Whether your are travelling for work or for fun, you won’t have any problem to find a hotel, motel or inn that will fit your needs.
