Yes, this is a grand size square with billions of pigeons, and recommend not wearing sandals AND wear a hat, but there is so so much more of the colourful people watching. There are a limited amount of benches, so watch and grab.

If you want a kickass picture with pigeons it's the place you should head to. You will find loads of people who sell food or to take pictures. Nothing more. There are beautiful buildings around but it's all about the pigeons. Talk a walk around the place it's nice :)

I read the prior reviews and made it a point to walk through this square. It is a plain square with pigeons. No architecture or photo ops here folks. Move on, there are many other things to see. This is not a "must see". Do not waste your valuable time.

We went during the weekend and it was great to see families enjoying their time together. The square was crowded although not so much as to prevent us taking photographs of the many buildings Including the Prefecture, the law courts, the central post office and banks. Most of the buildings were built during the 1920's and 30's and have been... More

There are plenty of old buildings to see around the square., including the Tax Office, court, church and bank. Plenty of sellers around trying to prize some dirhams for artefacts

This place is in the living center of Casa. Perfect for a break and watching the inner city life. Nothing special though

Nothing much to say really. I needed to kill time and sat in cafes, the exclusive domain of Moroccan men (single female in mid 50's travelling alone) watching the comings and goings of life in the Square.
