A nice big square sorely underused, a small number of car boot sale type stalls on a Saturday but nothing else, also beware of vehicles coming from all directions, it's not pedestrians only, Could be so much better with some cafe type stalls.

We took the pedicab tour and were taken her. What a lovely surprise! With a church founded by the crusaders and a university with the most decorated facade, this is worth a visit. Ok you won’t stay for hours but do try to at least...More
