This is a lovely little square that's always bustling with people. It's lined with cafes so a good place to sit and watch the world go by. It had a lovely market one of the days we were there.

Very large town center surrounded with restaurants and shops. It is always busy with tours and costumed restaurant employees trying to get customers.
