jpg: kstanek
London's most famous square was laid out in to commemorate Nelson's victory at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805. Dominating the square, on a column that is 185 feet high, is the 17 foot high statue of Nelson himself and around it are the four giant bronze lions sculpted by Landseer and cast by Marochetti.

The  National Gallery occupies the north side of the square and the
church of St Martin's in the Fields is at the northeast corner.
