Market Square, Victoria, Canada, 2010[open in full screen]  

 
 

This is one more of those places having the name they do not deserve. Space is courtyard and it is within the shopping centre named Market Square built in 1800 when Victoria was enjoying tremendous growth and prosperity.

  Heritage brick-and-beam buildings surround an open air courtyard – a great place to take a break and enjoy a take-out lunch.

Specialty stores and boutiques and several restaurants are completing the picture. There are two social places on both levels and they are both quite enjoyable.

 

On our last visit in June 2016 we noticed that some work is in progress to expand this area, let's wait until it's done to see what the future will bring to all of us, and especially to the city of Victoria.

We made new visit to this square in July 2017, big improvements, check it out.
