A large square where people gathers and mingles. The tram runs right thru the square. Large gardens and fountains where people can sit and enjoy. Nearby to restaurants and shopping.

A very nice square with beautiful buildings in beautiful colors. Check also the fountains. The park is closed at night but during daytime it is also worth a visit.
