  • A beautiful old Grand square just outside the Plazzo Reale. It is lined with lovely old buildings. Quite unlike many other cities.

  • Nice place to go and check out, you can also go into the Donjon and see everything from up there. You have nice seatings and areas to relax
  • Amazing square with buildings that are awesome to look at. The stone work in particular is incredibly done! Looks super pretty in the night too!
