Gorgeous trompe l’oeil frescoes have completely transformed the area that was previously an eyesore separating the Saint-Roch neighborhood from the Old Port. The frescoes are painted on concrete pillars that support the highway coming into the Upper Town, and they portray imaginative scenes inspired by medieval times, the circus, and more. Standing proud alongside graffiti, it is the city’s most interesting collection of urban art.
