This square is right in front of the palace and is well done with fountains. Was filled with thousands of people on Note Bianca with a band and stage.

Beautiful square surrounded by great architecture and ideal for a drink or lunch stop. Doesn't cost anything to swing by this square

Nice square, interestingly decorated. The fountain whose falls come out of the ground. Equally interesting to children and the elderly. The square has a width, brightness. Enough bench and space for rest.
