“Not very vibrant - lots of homeless people”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

We were expecting a vibrant square with lots of musicians and artisans. Maybe it was the time of year and unseasonably cool weather, but the square was almost vacant except for a few card readers and a number of homeless people.

“Loved it!”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

This was one of our favorite places to go on our trip! The art by the local artists is absolutely amazing and reasonably priced. The street performers are a lot of fun as well.
