Across Broad Street from the Parliament Buildings and bordered by High and Trafalgar streets, this triangular plaza marks the center of town. Its monument to Lord Horatio Nelson, who was in Barbados only briefly in 1777 as a 19-year-old navy lieutenant, predates Nelson's Column in London's Trafalgar Square by 30 years (1813 vs. 1843). There's also a war memorial and a fountain that commemorates the advent of running water on Barbados in 1865.

The square is also the start of the main shopping district in Bridgetown, so it is very easy to get to. There is also a lot of traffic and congestion (and a lot of drivers asking you if you want a taxi) around the square itself. Nice, but not really a destination on its own right.
