It is an open square on three sides surrounded by neo-Renaissance buildings. The southern side is open and has a nice view of the harbor.
Antonio Bajamonti (1822-1891) , a Dalmatian politician and former mayor of Split, had a goal to make Split a "City of the Future". He invested a lot of effort in the construction and decoration of Split, a then neglected provincial town, to make it a small European city.
The square was built in the 19th century under the supervision of General Marmont. It closely resembles the St. Mark's Square in Venice as the design was inspired by Italian architecture.
