Yes, it's nice. Yes the church is right there. Yes there are artifacts and pictures of the inside of the church. But at the end of the day, a square is a square is a square...

I do not know if it can be visited inside, we got there late and we strolled in the piazza. It's impressive! Even better than as seen in Montalbano.
