This is a popular tourist spot located inside of Old Montreal and leading to Old Port, lots of locals also chooses to relax here. There is always endless things to do and see. In the spring/summer when weather is perfect, there are entertainers who does shows around this area cheered on by the crowds. Tons of restaurants and little shops along the side to pop in and out for a quick beaver tail or ice cream or formal meal. There are small food stands and alleys of artists who sells their works or would make your cartoon portrait in a heartbeat. I love the feeling of sitting on the benches there watching the clouds and decompress. The science museum is very nearby with special Exhibitions. It's also a great spot to watch the international fireworks show happening across the river at La Ronde. In the winter, the ice rink is open to the public and they have yummy maple taffy stands in the middle of the street. Very walkable, good for exercise, gorgeous spot to relax and enjoy the day.

Place Jacques Cartier is the grandest public square in Old Montreal, and was named after the famous French explorer. The large statue in the background is dedicated to the British Admiral, Horatio Nelson, and was erected by British merchants in Montreal in 1808, just three years after Nelson had destroyed the combined French and Spanish fleets at the Battle of Trafalgar.
