This cobble stone plaza is located in the heart of Old Montreal and has a wide promenade sloping downward from rue Notre Dame to the Old Port. Definitely a tourist stop, the plaza is lively mix of sidewalk cafes, street performers, artists drawing portraits and at certain times of the year a flower market. Built in 1804, Place Jacques Cartier was used originally as a public market and in 1809 a monument to Admiral Nelso's defeat of the French at Trafalgar erected at the uppermost location of the still angers some Quebec nationalists.
