Maisonneuve Monument, Place d’Armes

Square Place d’Armes is a great place to go to in the summer or fall and just have a sit down.  Ever since the city renovated it a few years ago, it is a very open area.  Right in the middle of the square, is a monument to Paul Chomedey de Maisonneuve, the founder of Montreal.

Here is a view of the square itself.  I am looking forward to getting my hands on an ultra-wide lens for my camera.
