The gentle slope down from the Nelson monument affords a superb view of the Old Port. Built in 1804 on the old site of Château de Vaudreuil, Place Jacques-Cartier was used as a public market for many years. It is a major gathering place and entertainment site in Old Montréal drawing passers-by and visitors who enjoy street artists. Facing City Hall, Place De La Dauversière is a magnificent public garden.
