Great big square with the obligatory fish & chips and cafes but a great way to meet up or stop for a coffee or icecream.

Lots of fish and chip shops, visit the free glass blowers expo as you can see them actually making the crystal vases etc at the back.

Lovely lively location - many places to eat/drink or just to watch the world go by. Great history & bus station/food market close by.

Brilliant place to have a coffee or meal and watch the world go by. As it was sunny the week we were there, it was lovely to just sit in the sun and relax.

The many bars and restaurants around Casemates are as good as each other. Some make the english pub seem rather poor in comparison.

Casemates is interesting in that you can see how Gibraltar would have been many years ago, the square is walled and cobbled most celebrations go on in casemates including the National Day celebrations go on.

We visited here as part of our holiday. The Square is very touristy, but saying this it was enjoyable. We sat in the square in the sunshine people watching. I don't think this represents what Gibraltar has to offer, but part of the experience.
