I love this little square. Right now with renovations going on to the main entrance access to the cathedral is through thie entrance off this square. Wondeful place to sit and watch the world go past.

This fountain lies at the foot of the (steep) steps leading up to the Cathedral, and is a good place to arrange to meet friends, as it is a focal point in the city.

With a fountain and the entrance to the cathedral. The building opposite the church with the red door is actually a facade...not a real building!

Smaller than the others, this plaza is lively and opens on small streets and one large avenue with cafes and bars along the sidewalks.

It is a an average town fountain, but the importance resides in the fact that long time ago was the water spot for the horses rode by the peregrinos.

Nothing like a great Italian icon, but it just works. The horses are magnificent, it works well in the square, and it is worth a visit.
