There are several murals at Sherbrooke and they are very nice to see. Also you can take a tour and the guide will explain the story of these murals. You could joint this to a visit at the mansions and parc Howard.

If you're visiting the area, be sure to build in the mural tour in downtown Sherbrooke. The artists of MURIR are second to none in their creativity, whimsy, and startling "trompe l'oeil" techniques.
