Detailed neighbourhood map

Place d'Armes, the veritable heart of the city, offers a striking historical panorama. Here all the periods of Montréal's past are gathered in one place, around a monument dedicated to the city's founders. This section features the oldest standing building in Montréal, the huge church of the city's mother parish, the head office of the country's oldest bank, the city's first skyscraper... and the generations of skyscrapers that followed.
