It looks boarded up. But with about 4ft square enclosure, it’s anyone’s guess if the structure is even there or if it was hauled away elsewhere. There’s no notice if and when it would come back,

This column is almost in the heart of the old town and visitors will surely not miss it no matter which way you go to. However, in our recent visit there, it was under renovation (or reconstruction) and so it was "wrapped" up with scaffolds...More

It is a small column but very nice way to mark an important space at the eastern entrance (clock tower) just in front of St Blaise

Orlando column situated in Luze square is not a standout attraction. It’s rather uninteresting and features the 9th century knight, Orlando holding a bent sword. Interestingly the platform at the top actually serves a purpose. It was used for public proclamations. These days the column...More
