In close vicinity to the Notre Dame de Bonsecours church one will find the most beautiful square of the city which is decorated with a monument of its founder being Paul Chomedey sieur de Maisonneuve. The same beautiful and majestic is the square named after the queen Victoria. Ancient architecture connoisseurs are recommended to walk through the Mille Carre Dore quarter as this city area has preserved numerous buildings of different epochs. Among them the Meridit Palace is best worth attention. The building is executed in the Italian Renaissance style.
The Hugh Allan mansion is located near the palace. The best landmark of the Hispano-Moresque style is justly considered to be the Clarence-Sole mansion. Plenty of historical landmarks and variety of different architectural styles fused in original building complexes will turn a walk though the historical quarter of the city to an unforgettable journey to the past ages.
