We visited The Square each night after our evening meal, and I have to agree with other reviews it was quite dirty with a lot of foreign people begging on the streets and living in doorways. It gave a rather "seedy" impression and I would...More

Nice square to walk around or having a drink in a big terrace. In front of the square you can do a walk into the central garden and reach to beach. Very nice place to visit.

Always a great place to sit and watch the world go by. Always something going on to grab your attention, always pleasant to linger especially if the sun is shining.

I’m sure this is a wonderful place on the warm sunny day but it is just another city centre Square well served with footpaths and good access to the local gardens and parks and many many shops also good access to all the local buses
