Small but cute esplanade with a fountain in the middle. Lots of areas for shade for hot and sunny days. Not a must see but, if you are nearby, stop for some pictures.

Whilst much smaller that the Héré designed counterparts, this little square also has a beautiful and intriguing fountain which is worth a visit, if only to see the facial expressions of the bearded elders ‘supporting’ the main structure.

A little square with an amazing fountain inspired by Italian rococo style. If you want a romantic moment, I really think that you will find it there :)
