Relaxing square-not as crowded as others. Great to sit and view cathedral of John The Baptist. the fountain is great. The Flannery O'Conner house borders this square.

Savannah's squares are very unique and special. You have to see them all when visiting the city. There is nothing like them elsewhere in the county. Take the time to go to our visitor center and get the walking map. The squares are uniquely Savannah and beautiful to see. I think a walking tour is the best way to see them but you can also drive the route to see them.

Savannah has 23 squares and this is another beautiful square. This is nearby the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist. This is a very peaceful spot and is worth stopping at. Recommended.

Located adjacent to the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, this is a nice place to stop and relax. We saw flower petals in the grass, and our walking tour guide told us that marriages are performed here regularly!

One thing to note: During a break with a frozen coffee on a bench, my husband and I were approached by a man asking us if we could help him out by getting him something to eat. We offered to take him to Clary's Café up the road (where we had had lunch that day). However, when we entered, the woman working the register told us that he did this all the time and they had asked him to stop. She told us she wasn't sure that he was even homeless. This isn't to say that you shouldn't offer, but it's something to be aware of since we got unexpectedly cornered!
