This was a nice square. There is a large monument in the middle. Great to relax outside, drink coffee and enjoy the warmth. We loved all the squares. The homes around here are gorgeous. The trees are majestic and you have flowers already. Yea!

Lovely way to spend a morning is to walk the squares of Savannah. Many stately homes and picture opportunities. Mickva Israel is home to one of the longest lived congregations in USA. On everyone's touring list. Mercer house is the focus of the Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil book and movie murder. Both are worth viewing from... More

Savannah has 22 "Squares" and according to our Segway guide, this one is known for being the "most picturesque". After seeing it, my husband and I understood why.....it is a beautiful place to sit and enjoy the architecture of the surrounding homes and stately trees. It is also well known for where the murder took place in the movie, "Midnight... More

There are many squares in Savannah and some are more unique than others. This square offers and interesting monument, the synagogue is close by and other fascinating history to go along with it. Not sure if anyone can visit just one square while in town and I would really put this on your must see squares list. Stop by Forsyth... More

This review goes along with a few other reviews, since this whole area is extremely beautiful and all really close together. All of these little squares, and the historic district, are just amazing. It's so picturesque it's ridiculous. I could walk about all day looking at these different squares.

The plaques in the square tell much about the history of the heroes of Savannah. The memorial is awe inspiring. Plenty of shade to cool down under.

Located just two blocks north of Forsyth Park on Bull St and surrounded by the Mercer Williams House on one side and Congregation Mickve Israel on the other. Monterey Square was laid out in 1847 and was named to commemorate the capture of the city of Monterrey, Mexico in 1846, by General Zachary Taylor’s American forces. As with many of... More

I'm sure we can all pick out our favorite squares in Savannah, and Monterey is definitely one of mine. Beautiful square with a beautiful monument in a very accessible part of the city.

It's really close to Forsyth park so we strolled through both locations and they're both amazingly beautiful. Monterey square is small but peaceful and absolutely lovely.

This one was a bit different than the other squares as a larger momentum was in it. The surrounding buildings were beautiful as well, I found this one to be a bit more public so to speak with well visited stops surrounding it.
