This is a rather unassuming oblong shaped square right under Sainte-Catherine Metro Station. There’s no need to go out of your way to see it but if you happen to be passing along, you should be aware or a few things. For example, the Monument van de Oorlogsduif at the north end is dedicated to a rather underappreciated player of the First World War - pigeons. The birds were used to send messages in those times. There used to be fish market on the square, marked by its previous name, Marche aux Poissons. Now there are fish restaurants in the surrounding buildings. The square is the location of the Christmas Market known as Winter Wonders that lasts all of December. And the bodies of water make for nice photographs.
