  • The square of the Virgin is a Grand pedestrian plaza, which is surrounded by sites for a drink. In the evenings there is a great atmosphere, and now that nice weather, it is a pleasure to take some food and sit down to dine quietly at any of the corners of the square.

  • Find a wonderful place to sit out and stay on a terrace to enjoy the fine atmosphere in this square at the rear of the Cathedral. Check out walking the austere Cathedral and bombastic Basilica in (free during a church service). Climb the Tower of the Cathedral (€ 2) to out of breath by the fantastic views. Ears for the deafening clock that reads every hour!

  • There's a light in this square that gets really sparkle, the view ... the fountain at the bottom that gets you attention and stoking. There are plenty of eateries around the square a little raised above the same as they were the backdrop to a kind of theater. feels good ... then I advise you square to take randomly one of calle near there because there are alleys that are worth tracks.

  • Beautiful square in the heart of the historical center of the city. The scene of all major cultural events, religious and folkloric throughout the year. Place always animated, you can sit at one of the tables of the many bars and cafes and see the city pass you before! Very charming even at night with the cathedral and the church lit! Do not miss @gargio76
  • lovely little plaza, gets shady and cold later in the day. nice to hangout and have some beers and watch the world go round.
  • Beautiful plaza. Cathedral in the plaza is gorgeous. Lots of restaurants in plaza
  • Great place to sit and watch people go by. Great for lunch or dinner and a great meeting place
  • Surrounded by church, this location has a great view and ambiance. You can easily enjoy the various restaurants in the vincinity, and you can see the maybe 1-2 small children feeding the birds or running through the flock of birds on the ground. Sit back and enjoy some good food, a cold chilled beer and relax as you enjoy a well deserved meal in a beautiful location, while enjoying the cool summer breeze.
