The Piazza Grande is astonishing. Definitely worth paying a visit and taking some photos. I would recommend wearing comfortable shoes, since the pavement is rather inappropriate for high heels.

The buildings that surround this piazza are gorgeous. Nice people walking and a good stop en route to Mercato Albinelli or if you're planning to check out the Duomo.

We strolled through the piazza on our way to dinner. Many people were enjoying drinks at cafes. The architecture around the piazza is interesting.

Attractive square surrounded by architecturally beautiful buildings but the cathedral is without doubt the star of the show. A number of cafes offer refreshment or an opportunity to watch the world go by. Not to be missed during a visit to Modena.

The old buildings are very beautiful to look at. Special large stone on the square, one thousand years old, from top of it the town management has spoken in the past. The buildings are from the 1100's.
