This square is located in he centre of the old town. It is near the mosque and provides open space in the middle of the crowded old town. There is graffiti but other than that well maintained and presented. It is worth the visit.

Very interesting square in the heart of the city. It’s a shame about the graffiti but if you spend the time there it will reward you. Some of the graffiti is artistic but some are just tags and unsightly on the monument and buildings.

Large square right in the middle of the town. You could say it is an oasis but there were lots of kids playing there so it wasn't quiet. It is a bit Naples-like with the graffiti but it certainly has a municipal feel to it...More

I had bought a guide book explaining the history and sights around the square so came prepared because there isn't much in there, some complain about the graffiti, but i quite liked it

According to its name, this square refers to the greek refugees of the Asia Minor (Mikros) a century ago. If you are lucky, you can enjoy a folklore event

We visited with my family Mikrasiaton Square last March. It is a big place where you can walh, sit and the children can play and enjoy by ball or by bicycles.
