There were street vendors galore when we were there and many people around the square. There is a Cafe Kiosk on the Corner and the street vendors were displaying there wares nearby. Right in the middle of the Rue St. Catherine's shopping district.

Of the three Montreal squares in close proximity: Phillips; Victoria; Place D'Armes- this one retains the most of its original flavour and charm. Largely because it's thus far been spared re-development and most of it's trees and grass remain intact. It's still more a park...More

A fun place to visit. Lots of people, birds-pigeons, squirrels, and simple Nature ... revealing herself to the visitors. Fresh air, lots of place to walk around and enjoy the outdoors.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and
commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship
stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate
headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by
nightfall transforms from a business district into a
youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young
