A beautiful little square with so much history surrounding the statue of the founders of Montréal and perfect location to photograph the impressive Notre-Dame Basilica

Renovated in recent years with universal access, this is a cute square with a large fountain in the middle with trees on the perimeter, where everyone gets their requisite pictures of Notre-Dame Basilica. Usually animated by buskers in the summer. Large benches available for seating/lying down. Grab an ice cream and delectable cupcake from Les Glaceurs down the street and eat it here al fresco while you people watch. Great meeting place when you're in a group - not too big, not too small. Tourists could get horse-drawn carriage rides here, but no longer after December 2019 (outlawed by the city).

Place d'Armes is a central square in Old Montreal. There are several important buildings around the square: The Notre-Dame Basilica, the Saint Sulphis Seminary, the New York Life Building, and the Bak of Montreal's head office. At the center of the square is the statue of Paul de Chomedey Maisonneuve (1612-1676), French officer in the French army and the founder of Montreal, and also its first governor. You can find here singers and other street performers, and in the evening the square gets even more lively.

We really only walked through this area on our way to Notre-Dame Basilica. It's a cute square, decorated nicely for the holidays.
