- Located between St-Jacques and Notre-Dame Streets, this square dates from the late 17th century. Surrounding it are many of the original buildings from subsequent historical eras, including Notre-Dame Basilica and the St-Sulpice Seminary. At the centre of the square is a statue of Paul de Chomedey, the "Sieur de Maisonneuve" and founder of Montreal. Most tourists today also know the square as the place where they can find a calèche ride through the streets of Old Montreal.
