Unfortunately a little too obscured/hard to get a decent wideshot for photos of the building alone, since the colour and design deserve it, but still worth a look.

The City Hall is located at the top of a hill, with a very nice square in front of it. It has shops close by and lot's of places to eat something. Very close by there is a pedestrian street full of restaurants. Very nice.
