In a way, this town square reminds one of utopia. It’s clean, spacious and comforting all at the same time. Beautiful buildings surround it and if that’s not all to check out, the people watching here is excellent. Lots and restaurants and bars give the place a very bustling feel. It’s quaint. Grab a local and ask them to tell you the story behind the spectacular statue of Brabo (a local legend) in the centre.
