  • A must to visit! Nice fountain. A lot of people.
  • It could be better without cars
  • Iconic fountain and statues in a very busy corner, best seen on Sunday when you can ride bikes freely downtown
  • You can kill 2 birds with 1 stone but visiting here and the aqueduct. It's a 15-20 minute walk from cathedral.
