This is a very grand square with shops and restaurants. The all brick buildings fit in with the rest of the city which seems to be all brick. We did not shop there or dine but it was just nice to walk around the area.

This is a very tidy covered square in an elegant town centre, very fin de siecle. Mainly restaurants in the square, and food, wine and a fair number of bag and lingerie shops in the side streets. Worth a walk around.

Reminds one of the Place de Vosges in Paris although it is smaller and less elegant. Nevertheless, it is very impressive. Lots of cafés have seating in the square.
