Many good ones posted - Grande Place in Bruxells (the one in Bruges is also lovely), Piazza Navona and Piazza della Republica in Rome, Trafalgar, San Pietro in Rome, Siena, San Marco in Venice, the one on Mexico City; but also my Parisian loved ones: the square around Notre Dame, Les Halles, the esplanade of the Invalides, Champs de Mars, Trocadero, Place de la Madeleine, Place des Vosges etc. And all those thousands and thousands of markets from most European towns... Gotta love real public space!

Does La Rambla from Barcelona qualify as a square? Theoretically it's an avenue with a very large walking middle, but practically it's a long square.
