Inaugurated in 2004, the Quartier international (QIM) is a new urban area located between the city's business district and Old Montreal. Restoring the link between two of Quebec's major tourism sectors and revitalizing the area, the QIM is a choice site to display a model of innovation in design, architecture and planning and to stage cultural activities. The redevelopment of Victoria Square with its series of fountains and the creation of Place Jean-Paul-Riopelle featuring Riopelle's bronze sculpture-fountain and ring of fire entitled La Joute (The Joust) are only a few of the attractions that visitors can now discover.
