From here, you can reach the old town, the promenades and the shopping district within less than 5 minutes. Moreover, the place itself is both very well proportioned, has fine sculptures and fountains and it is full of many different forms of city life.

Wide expanse of concrete really. Strange fountain as focal point. But the park with large water feature was gorgeous. Dont miss wandering through this lovely setting or taking time to sit with a picnic.

This is a magnificent square with Poseidon fittingly on the side of the sea, parks on both sides and architecturally homogeneous buildings on all sides that remind me of Madrid. The new trams add to the feeling of a big town. Why the lowish mark?...More
