This an unusual and interesting square. But it is empty, literally, except for a restaurant that comes to life at lunchtime and the evening. Just a few metres away is the Tourist Information Centre. Apart from an excellent man there who knows a lt there...More

We sat enjoying a glass of wine I a very pleasant bar. All of a sudden the music and light show started. A special evening was made even better. A must.

It is a nice place to visit for the architecture, however, it isn't really a centre of city life. I think it is an area that was once run-down and they are trying to bring it back to life

When we visited this colorful plaza around lunchtime it was rather abandoned, with only two terraces open serving only a few guests. It has a lot of potential though for more lively entertainment, although many of the buildings surrounding the square seems to be apartments,...More
