Always worth stopping to see and the twice weekly market is close by. Very intricate stone work and attention to detail. Good place to meet as well!

On the edge of the centre is the American Fountain. Initially, I thought it wasn't the most prettiest thing I have seen.Only a small monument but full of details. Worth the look.

We saw it all lit up in its blue Christmas lights, looked very pretty. Great place to use as a meet up point, very easy to find!

Quaint monument, with lots of detail. Has quotes on the sides from Shakespeare’s plays. Looking pretty with Christmas lights on it :)

It is a lovely monument but also the square makes an excellent setting for the market, which always has a good variety of temptations.

Here again, This is something you observe on your stroll through the town. It is nicely constructed and has historical value. Its at the center of cross roads so a great landmark and meeting point.
