We walked quite a bit around the streets of Montreal in the area of Place Jacques-Cartier
. This is a great place to stop and rest for a while. The huge building adjacent to the square is beautiful ! The grounds are nicely kept and there is a number of restaurants nearby . It is a great place to view the surrounding area from the atop the square.

Street performers entertaining crowds, lots of restaurants, kiosks, boutiques. A park-like atmosphere in the heart of Old Montreal with benches for people-watching.

This market place was built at the beginning of the 19th Century and has become one of the liveliest places in Montreal, no visit would be complete without spending some time here and admiring the statue to Lord Nelson which dominates the square.

So pretty and with so many beautiful historical buildings surrounding it! Moreover, just exploring on foot along all of the side streets radiating from it are a delight!
