This can be found just off Buchanan Street nearby the underground station. A nice tribute to this great man who sacrificed so much. I have been to Robbin Island just off Cape Town where he was incarcerated for many yours. His conditions were horrendous.

A nice tribute to a great man from the city. A small square that is dominated by a church with a cafe.

Well worth asking about ( or Google) how this street came to be named. Apparently, Glasgow was the first city to honour Nelson Mandela. This attracted criticism but eventually others followed.

There is a nice church building situated at the centre of Nelson Mandela Place. It's on the edge of Buchanan Street which you will probably walk along as you are moving about Glasgow.

Yes, to honour Nelson Mandela by giving the street name but... should it be an attraction in Tripadvisor?, common....... The plaque of the street name is on the left side of the entrance of St.George's Tron

Yes this is a good place to remember this most famous politician and world statesman although one would have thought that further information or statue could have been Commissioned to be placed here

Relatively small square just off the hectic Buchanan Street. Several lovely architectural sights but other than that not much to say really.
