Huge public place for sightseeing, taking pictures or just spending time relaxing. It is always appreciated that governments care to give this public places instead to shopping malls...

Nice cathedral and nice plaza for walking although the stores are more suited for local tastes, nothing for tourists like souvenirs of any kind and limited eateries.
