Montreal/Verdun

Verdun is a borough in the south of Montreal, bordered by the South-West borough to the north, LaSalle to the west and by the St-Lawrence river to the south-east. The main commercial streets are Wellington and De L'Église.

Verdun is not a touristic neighborhood. However, the adventurous tourist who seeks an off-the-beaten-track destination will find peaceful streets with typical red brick triplexes, a lively main street, beautiful views of the river and restaurants well worth the detour.

Verdun also hasa a few Bixi (bike-share) stations and bicycle lanes.
