Most travelers typically make their way to the major square of a big city when exploring. Here are a few of the world’s most iconic squares.
It is impossible to just walk through Marrakesh’s Djemma el-Fna. You’ll be sidetracked by performers of all sorts, colorful water sellers and at night endless rows of outdoor food stalls.
Museums, government buildings and the entrance to the Forbidden City flank Beijing’s massive Tiananmen Square.
Mexico City’s Zocalo sits on the site of the ancient Aztec capital of Tenochtitlan, which was conquered by Spain centuries ago. You can still see Aztec dancers and shaman perform their ancient rituals.
St. Peter’s Square in Vatican City is where many come to see the Pope give his blessing and to take in the beauty of the Basilica of the same name.
