    Place d'Armes is a wonderful snapshot of many different periods in Montréal history, surrounding a monument dedicated to the city's founders.

  B The old Sulpician Seminary, dating from 1684, is the earliest surviving building in Montréal.
  C The Gothic Revival Notre-Dame Basilica, inaugurated in 1829, is the heart of Montréal's first parish.
  D The Duluth Building, erected in 1912.
  E The Aldred Building, from 1931, is renowned for its Art Deco style.
  F The New York Life Insurance Building, dating from 1888, was Canada's first skyscraper.
  G The Hôtel Place d'Armes now occupies the Great Scottish Life Insurance Building (1870).
  H These buildings include the former head office (1847) of the Bank of Montreal, Canada's oldest bank, founded in 1817.
