Large square with some impressive buildings around it. The market takes centre stage. We enjoyed the singing of local choirs on the stage. Good atmosphere walking amongst the stalls. Not bad food prices although queues were very long on a Saturday.

Since it’s near Christmas, there were many stalls selling Christmas stuff from toys to handmade jewelry to home deco. There are a lot of eating places too both at stall and in the restaurant nearby!
