This is the city plaza in the old city. It's pleasant, but nothing really special. There are many prettier fountains in European cities, and nice plazas in lots of European cities. It is likely you'll get here, because there are other sites that are nearby,...More

Historic fountain near the center of the Old City with cobble stone streets going in several directions amid old buildings housing shops and outdoor cafes. Pretty spot for a walk on a nice day.
