The centre of Cape Town has many historic attractions such as these and attest to the open spaces for residents and tourists alike to appreciate the city's rich and cultural history here is just another such example of the Mother City's beautiful attractions.

Church Square isn't anything too exciting but does offer a few nice spots to sit and relax perhaps before or after visiting some of the great restaurants nearby

This place wasn't high on places we visited in Capetown but somewhat enjoyed walking through it. There's a few coffee shops nearby as well where you can stop and people watch.

There is a feeling of tranquility and peacefulness when you are in the square. it is right across from the Groote Kerk. The buildings around the square is very beautiful. Very close to the museum quarter.

Our accommodation looks out onto Church square, which is frequented but tour busses. It's a small but well kept square and the main entrance to the Groote Kerk. I've not seen much happening here other than a few groups of men milling around.

This is where you find the Groote Kerk and if you want to go inside you have to enter from this square. Apart from this there are few buildings here, some quite tall.

Church Square in the heart of Cape town has real historic significance but no real value for a passing tourist. A cobbled square with a statue of some forgotten person is hardly a tourist draw. Recently some black granite blocks have been erected at one...More
