Place d'Armes - Montreal, QC


I better finish off my Montreal posts since my next vacation is coming up soon soon! So the last time, I wrote about the Bank of Montreal. Well it is located around a square called Place d'Armes, which is the second oldest public site in Montreal. Surrounding the square are the buildings: 500 Place d'Armes, BMO, Hotel Place d'Armes, New York Life Insurance Building, Aldred Building, and Notre-Dame Basilica.

 New York Life Building and the Aldred Building beside/behind it.

 The New York Life Building was Montreal's first high-rise!

In the centre of the square is a monument in memory of Paul Chomedey de Maisonneuve, the founder of Montreal.

 Paul Chomedey is at the top of the monument while there are other statues of people at the base. Lambert Closse and his dog is one of them.

Across from BMO is the Notre-Dame Basilica. It is so beautiful inside. (Next post)

There were a lot of horses drawn carriages around the square.

 To the left of the horses is the Saint-Sulpice Seminary, which is the oldest structure in Montreal!

 The horse is wearing a tiny HAT.
