Place d’Youville is a beehive of activity these days. Construction is taking place at Le Diamant (left) and Le Capitole (right) and, on the far right, restoration work on the ramparts is underway. Workmen bask in the sunshine as they sit on the steps of the square and enjoy their lunch.

It’s no longer winter in Quebec, so it must be “construction” season, as evidenced by the beehive of activity taking place at Place D’Youville these days. At the heart of it all is an amazing extension to Le Capitole hotel next to Porte Saint-Jean and the ramparts.
