Come and take some photos of the Duomo and the lovely buildings surrounding this square and enjoy some beautiful views of the sea. Cafes and restaurants surround you, as do lots of souvenir shops. Popular.

A lovely big piazza with not one but two impressive churches, one is the Cathedral and the other is just as impressive. Beautiful baroque both inside and out. Wonderful works of art inside both churches. Highly recommend a visit.
