My favorites:

Plaza de Espana, Seville - beautiful!
Palace Square in St. Petersburg - very grand.

I also love the many lovely and quaint squares of Savannah GA...http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Squares...annah,_Georgia

It is nice, but in a poll of the world's best squares it probably needs a bit of home-town boosting!

I adore the squares of Moscow and St Petersburg. They're absolutely beautiful.

Here's some more of the Brussels Grand Place:

No offense, but my first 20 favourite squares would be all italian. Just saying!

1) Piazza del Campo, Siena (where they held the famous Palio)

Il Corteo storico (Palio di Siena) di Enrico P., su Flickr

2) Puerta del Sol, Madrid (as a happening venue. I actually don't like its architecture, but i think a square is more than the architecture. That's why there's no Piazza San Pietro or Place de la Concorde on my list).

3) Plaza de Espana, Sevilla
