Add to travel planner


The Square is probably the most significant urban space in the City. Originally the landing beach was nearby and much of the goods arriving at or leaving from Port Elizabeth did so via Market Square. The Square became the focal point for the buying and selling of goods by the local and district farmers. At one time a bell was placed in Market Square and was rung daily at market time; being located in the heart of the settlement, the bell also served as a fire alarm.
