Lovely open space to sit in the sun and people watch and listen to the musicians. Plenty of seating and lots to look at.

At the intersection of a large basilica and some of the largest banks in Canada, you will find this plaza. A statue to remember the founding on Montreal, benches to sit and relax, always musicians to entertain. Its fun to watch the tour groups meeting...More

There is always people without feeling crowded. It's more like full of live. Undoubtedly all of us are taking pictures all the time before and after Notre Dame.

With a large statue of Paul Chomedey de Maisonneuve, founder of Montreal, dominating the square, this beautiful and peaceful spot is a great place for a few photos. It stands in front of the Notre Dame Basilica. Walk around. 10 to 15 mintues and you're...More

For me, Place d'Armes marks the boundary between Old and modern Montreal. Situated right in front of Notre Dame, it makes for a nice place to relax with a cup of coffee and people watch. Aside from the cathedral and a few statues, there isn't...More
