Very large square spreading out below the Palace de Papas. Surrounded by restaurants and very full of tourists, as one would expect. We just had coffee here although there were a load of different menus on offer.

Lined with Cafés and bistros that face the City Hall, and made cheerful by a Carousel, this is a delightful place to stroll, have a coffee, and watch the people walk by.
