It was once a center of commercial, religious and political activity. It is still impressive with several points of interest, an assortment of shops, and many cafes. Part of it is undergoing restoration now.

This is one of the main squares in Mantova and, with its cafes and bars, provides a good place to stop for a drink or a bite. It's very close to the many of the major sites.
