Located in the heart of Montreal’s “International District” is a fountain designed by famed Quebec artist Jean-Paul Riopelle. The statue, entitled La Joute (or The Joust in english), is a group of bronze sculptures that incorporate the elements of fire and water in revolving 32 minute kinetic sequence. It’s a romantic gem that many travelers overlook.

Our photo of the week is by Jason Iplunshu, who also has a fine selection of other Montreal shots.
