Place is an interesting architectural highlight. It is smaller than what I thought after I had seen it through photos. I was there in the early afternoon and the place was totally deserted. Could be more geared for tourism.

Yes, it's nice. Yes the church is right there. Yes there are artifacts and pictures of the inside of the church. But at the end of the day, a square is a square is a square...

I do not know if it can be visited inside, we got there late and we strolled in the piazza. It's impressive! Even better than as seen in Montalbano.

Although I thought the Loggiato del Sinatra square was larger it was still interesting to visit. Located in Piazza Santa Maria Maggiore the nearby church is also an attraction.
