looking west from Bastion Square Bastion Square, downtown Victoria, BC

Bastion Square
Site of the original Fort Victoria, now long gone - and said to harbour a haunted building - many small shops, arts and crafts stands, benches to sit on, several restaurants, and some welcome greenery - and a wide scenic view of Inner Harbour and beyond - Bastion Square gives respite from the rush of the city in the midst of the city, and a chance to regroup oneself while soaking up some pacific scenery.

Stretching between Wharf and Government Streets, there are street musicians, even bands in summer here, who add the beauty of their music to that of the scenery - and the always popular outdoor seating of the restaurants completes the lively historic ambience of BastionSquare.
