Expecting more.

We almost walked right past it. Very small square. Was great to see the vendors and carts full of baby chicks but don't try to touch or see unless you are buying.

All around this square are government buildings, many built by the French in the 1920s. The Post Office is a must, plus the Majorelle paintings in - I think - the Town Hall.

A quick view is sufficient, nothing really special to see and the nearby gardens are not properly maintained

We travelled by train from fez to El Jadida. In Casablanca we make a short stop just to visit the square and the mosque. At the trainstation take a red taxi(like the rest of Morocco only drive by meter!). The ride takes max 10-15 min. Look around on the square and mosque for 60 minutes and ur on time to... More

Very clean and well-kept square adjacent to the city hall and court. Good place to rest and people watching. Tramway station.

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 :)

For those too ill-informed to have acquainted themselves with some knowledge of the colonial architecture of the period of the Protectorate, this might just be a square "full of pigeons". For those with some cultural sensitivity, this is a marvel of Mauresque-style buildings. The Courthouse, the Town Hall, the French Consulate and the rest. At night the fountains are a... More

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.
