Mensagem:  Dale,

In this case, "on" refers to the area surrounding the square, right? If we were referring to the statues that stand inside Trafalgar Square, would it be acceptable to use the preposition "in"?

I'm thinking about the difference between "in the street" (in the area where people drive) and "on the street" (alongside the street on either side). Would the same logic apply?

Thanks,
Tiago
