Nice place to walk around, lots of stalls to buy from, but lots of people trying to sell you trips around the town

So many photo opportunities in this medieval square. Take all evening just strolling around and there are plenty of places to eat...but one street back it's half the price.
Street performers come out early in the evening. ..worth a watch.

Well preserved and picturesque buildings with not too crowded plaza is a great place to get your bearings and venture out exploring. Plenty of restaurants and cafes and tourist shops.

Weather you like shopping in proper shops or visiting market stalls this place has it all. We really liked the stalls cause of all the hand made local good on display. All at reasonable prices.

Around the square there are a great number of bars and restaurants. From fine dining to mcdonalds.
