Dating back to the 19th century, the magnificent stone buildings on Saint-Paul and De la Commune streets are still full of life today. Some used to be warehouses but have been renovated and now house local designer and craft stores, art galleries, artists' studios and the famous Marché Bonsecours. Chansonnier bars, jazz clubs and buzzing lounges make for a lively nightlife along these old cobblestone streets with a unique character.
