  • Walked across the square to the train station and took our time to enjoy the mosaic floor patterns and the fountain, very nice 
  • Very moved square, with many people and transport. A good walk is worthwhile.

  • This square that in previous centuries was out of walls and for trimming the horses, is now a center full of life and attractions for local and foreign.
