Though there’s not much to do at Church Square, it’s still worth visiting for it’s historical value. It’s the centre of Pretoria and surrounded by a number of old but important buildings. There’s the Palace of Justice, the Old Capitol Theatre, the National Bank and Mint, The Tudor Chambers, the Old Council Chamber and the General Post Office, all of which have some minor architectural merit. The Palace of Justice here is worth checking out; it was the site of Nelson Mandela’s trial of treason, post which he was incarcerated. There’s a large statue of Paul Kruger in the centre of the square; click a picture. The market near the square is worth checking out and it also makes for good people watching.
