  • We were not lucky, as there was heavy rain, and the square was not cleaned after some fest. Still, it is impressive  more »
  • Really nice square to sit and have coffee. A lot of people and good atmosphere. Nice decorations on the buildings.  more »

  • Beautiful square with bars and restaurants. Famous Harry's Bar where James Joyce used to hang. Be aware though: tourist prices!
  • The most beautiful city center I have ever seen. The palaces are gorgeous and they reminds me of Vienna a little bit. I really recommend to spend 2 days there to enjoy the night too. When the plaza lights up, the city completely change. It worths your time.
