I visited in summer and the plaza had several stalls and inflatable bouncy castles for the children. Great for quick snack or for a short break to rest your tired feet and take in the history surrounding the square.

Lovely city square, all cobblestone, you can hire a horse drawn carriage tour of the city. Plenty of shops and restaurant/bars to sit around and watch the world go by as the wife spends your money.

If you have seen the movie sound of music you will like this place. It's shot in the garden there. Beautiful fountains and just a walk through it brings back the movie to life for you

I was here on an off day but there was still a wonderful selection of local farmer's cheeses and fruits and vegetables. Great place to visit and walk the different stalls.

The market was huge, and they were smaller markets interconnected to form one big market. I got completely lost walking through it! The baked potato was a great food item for a cold day. Other comfort food was churros and waffles. The market was surrounded...More
