On a nice day in the Summer you can sit there and watch a band. On dreary days, and there are plenty there, you just rush through it to get somewhere else as the fountain is full of rubbish and gangs of kids are hanging...More

Beautiful place, friendly and amazing ruins as well as water features centres in the square itself. Shop assistants were very polite and helpful, bar strip with clean and well attended staff, market close by and plenty shops of all varieties. Very enjoyable visit.

Well, it's definately not what it used to be like. Would rather the greenery and plants back here like it used to be.
