This is a place for the avid book reader. There are multiple little stands where one can find any genre books for only a fraction of the price. There are also some random small shops around the square.

Beautiful plaza but try to see it in the morning because it is very crowded if you come later - it becomes a book market. A few more coffee shops would be better. There is McDonalds which opens at 7.30.
