Imagine the old world while strolling through the Place Jacques-Cartier. With historic monuments and classical ''terrace'' dining, Place Jacques-Cartier has a quaint Parisian feel.

Tourists must stop to see an original piece of the wall of the Old Fortified City and the controversial statue devoted to the memory of Admiral Horatio Nelson called, Nelson's Column. Place Jacques-Cartier is a destination for eating in the open air, walking through history and enjoying the company of family.
