The square is not that big, but overall ok. With the St. Martins church and some shops it fits perfectly in the old town. The best thing was the small maquette of the old city, with small wells around it.

The old town of Chur is relatively small so inevitably you will find your way to this area without a problem. We certainly did.

This is a quaint area in old town Chur where the cafes are open on Sunday. You are surrounded by historic buildings and church steeples when at an outdoor café on a cobblestone square.
