Cosy square with cafes & restaurants. I stopped there for coffee and dinner, friendly staff, mostly locals visiting, would definitely recommend. A bakery and a supermarket are also at hand.

One or two nice places to eat in the square, plus a theatre (we saw Carmen there), a mix of working (and not working) and middle classes with an edge to it. There is a daily flower market and on a Sunday the square is...More
