    Da for two photos, the Cathedral and the Town Hall. At night, the plaza is illuminated with white fluorescent lights that pale it. The Cathedral is beautiful. Except those two buildings, the rest are banks and other modern buildings. Or a bar, a restaurant... nothing glamorous... you can omit the visit.

    Photographers you can count a little more about the history of the city. It is a park to photograph.

    A beautiful square with a very good location and a cozy story close to the central Church. A welcoming place to visit, stroll and meet with friends, family or partner
