Of the three Montreal squares in close proximity: Phillips; Victoria; Place D'Armes- this one retains the most of its original flavour and charm. Largely because it's thus far been spared re-development and most of it's trees and grass remain intact. It's still more a park...More

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
