The square is right in front of the Groote Kerk. There is currently a colorful display on water awareness in the square. I love the 2 faced statue!

Church Square is close to several landmarks in Cape Town including Parliament, Company's Gardens, St. George's Cathedral, etc. Nothing special about the Square despite the name but worth a visit and walk through.

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.

You can sit and view the architecture from one of the good few coffee shops in the area, before heading down to the Groote Kerk. But the squere itself is nothing to write home about.

church square is kind of interesting for being such a quiet place right in the city center. i enjoy it here because it feels so futuristic instead of historic. but yes, the buildings surrounding the square are mostly old ones. take a look at the...More
