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.

All the Savannah squares are nice. This one seemed a bit above the others. It is somewhat removed from the action and therefore not as trafficked. Beautiful trees, lush vegetation, surrounded by stately and well preserved mansions. One of the mansions was the home of Jim Williams, the lead character in Midnight in the Garden….

We stopped in Monterey Square for some pictures and a little rest. It was so nice. We took pictures for another couple that was traveling and in return they took some for us. I would love to visit again.

One of the most beautiful squares in Savannah, Monterey (sic) Square was laid out in 1847 as a tribute to the Battle of Monterrey (18460 in which Zachary Taylor led American forces to victory. A key question is why is the monument to General Casimir Pulaski here rather than in Pulaski Square. Originally he was honored jointly with General Nathanael... More
