Loved this place and the park with the water fountains. I'm not really a beach goer but love relaxing under a shady tree. Was great!

Great place to people watch and take a seat at night before going back to your hotel. Sometimes their street acts on good entertainment to watch them dancing.

A large public space that is beautifully laid out, with a beautiful system of fountains that spout water on a schedule - terrific. Not to be missed for anyone in the general area.

Go run through the fountains to cool off! Lovely area to walk through and people watch and continue along through the park and circle back through the old town.
