We visited in the first weekend of February - carnival preparations had just started with parades of different companies giving life to the square! It was buzzing with people walking around.

We walked around, up and down, day or night and enjoyed the spectacular view created by each moment of the day. We had a tasty lunch, we had a good beer, sometimes a good wine, and good moments!!!!

The main attraction here is the arena but it is a nice area to walk through as a starting point for your walk thru the old town.

Wonderful large square which is great for people watching and just wandering around admiring the views Surrounded by restaurants and cafes and then the amazing Arena at the far side , with the main street for High-end fashion just a few steps away With the right acoustics some nights - you could hear the Opera from within the Arena
