Architecture Center Houston Walking Tour: Montrose

The Menil

Montrose is one of the most diverse and interesting neighborhoods in Houston with some of the city's best architecture, including spectacular mansions, charming bungalows, the campus of the University of St. Thomas, Rothko Chapel and the Menil Collection.

Architecture Center Houston tour guides will present an overview of the architectural and social history of the area and offer guests a look inside of the Fondren Mansion (now La Colombe d'Or), Annunciation Greek Orthodox Cathedral, Chapel of St. Basil, Rothko Chapel, Cy Twombly Gallery and the Menil Collection.

On this two-hour walking tour, you will get a flavor of this special district and be encouraged to widen your path after the tour is over.
