This a good place to visit. It is a historic place that had a large influence on the growth of Jamaica. It is a place to visit.

Sam Sharpe Square is a little gem in downtown Montego Bay. It gives a small insight into the slavery past of Jamaica and the struggle to end it.
It is also a beautiful square to see outside of that.

If you like to know the history of the people, and/or the island that you travel to, then this one to hear. It's a small square, but it has history.

Worth a visit to see the real Jamaica. It's a cobblestone square with a few historic buildings. It's important historically and worth visiting but not many reasons to stay around for. Buy a pattie in one of the many shops.
