I visited this city last week and was surprised by how vibrant the city's main square is ! Perhaps more so due to St Patty's day, there was a live music festival going on with a local food and crafts market. It was just so much fun..

This large plaza is often filled with special displays and events. It is in front of the Capitole, which is open to the public free of charge and contains some interesting art and architectural features. Check out the enormous impressionist paintings on the second floor.

Relaxing area, huge market, central to everything. Have a beer in the sun if you have 8 or 9 euro spare.

Beautiful courtyard for some nibbles and drinks outside the many little brasseries on this courtyard. It does get busy very quickly so I advise arriving a little earlier than your chosen "lunch time" so that you can find a table.

An elephantine building that dominates an otherwise fairly unremarkable square. But there's no way you can miss it.

Charming place. Many shops in the area. We decided to visit the interior of the City hall. It is stupendous. Very ornate place with beautiful paintings . It's worth the visit.

Go through the security gate and visit the beautifully painted public rooms of the Capitole. This is free entrance and well worth a 30 min visit before relaxing at one of the cafes in the Capitole or buying a heavenly icecream!!
