This cobblestone market square, one of the largest in Europe, is lined with magnificent baroque buildings and 18th-century arched and barrel-vaulted arcades. The Fountain of Sampson stands in the square's center.

It is a must location for taking pictures and selfies. This square is the true centre of the city. Every house and every corner is worth to be pictured. Dozens of pubs and cafe offer food and drink with a view.

Nice town square with lots of businesses around surrounding it. Black Tower which dates to around 1555 right there. Nice center monument. There is a clock on a building that played nice long chimes at noon. Not sure if it does that every hour.
