  • It is a central place where many people are to go to different places, it is not very nice, however, is well maintained

  • I went with my daughter to the square and saw the clock. Very nice. good thing about the place is that it has many shops close and there are craft fairs or posts of people with things made by themselves

  • It is in the historic centre of the city, is clean and very well cared. The central clock is a very popular, perfect attraction for a photo. If you're lucky like me, you can hear the chimes at the hour indicated!
