Little public square (park) in downtown Montreal. Good place to hangout, rest, relax, and people watch most of the time. Some trees provide shade, benches to sit, and a bit of grassy areas to enjoy. It is surrounded by offices, retail stores, restaurants, and vendors....More

When I got here early evening the stalls near the square were already packing up. I liked the flowers in the area, and the Tourist Information office next to it.

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
