very big square full of historic buildings. quite touristy (as would be expected) but still a great place to spend a few hours. many of the bars/restaurants around the square are not over priced as well (unlike many other touristic squares in other big cities)

The glass sheltered areas are outside seating for restaurants located in the main square. They have heaters and blankets. Great food and great views of the square. Hope this is what you meant?
