This is a large town square with a great obelisk in the centre. There are cafes around the edges. Many walking tours go through here.

This was a lovely square with a magnificent obelisk in the centre. There was a street musician giving the square atmosphere, and cafes around.

Similar to many town squares in France this area is a landmark for those on a walking tour. It cannot be described as quant, welcoming or remarkable in any way. It is however not unpleasant. You will likely walk through it without noticing although maybe...More

The first structure I noticed in this central square was its 65.7-feet-high red-granite oblesik. The 4th-century column stands in a water basin, smack in the middle of the open space. It is impossible to miss. A few people sat on nearby benches in the hot...More

We took an excursion here from our MSC cruise. We had a guided walking tour and one of our stops was here. The square is nice with several historical locations to visit. There is a medieval church here that is worth visiting as well.
