A few things to see here but obelisk is main site. The Romans brought it from Turkey! Each corner has a carved lion and each side has a fountain spurting. Hard to miss right in town center!

We read about the history of the beautiful fountain in the centre of this square. It was bright by Romans from Egypt - nice to take a few pictures and enjoy looking at it.
