An old world square with a nice sculpture in the middle of a stone area. Lovely old architecture all around. Pleasant but cold.

The gardens hidden behind these walls are something to see. The old architecture is well worth a visit and seems to be housing a university at the moment.

In this place, in May, the students of the university join with their typical clothes and there are a group singing.

Sincerely it's just another monument. Nothing outstanding. If you are in the city center then you will probably pass by.

Thank Binarysir
