No visit to this charming little town would be complete without taking in this main landmark. Sit and people watch over a glass of something cold, and rest you legs after some exhausting sight-seeing. There's plenty of choice with many bars and restaurants!

Lovely little square surrounded by older buildings and small shops, restaurants and cafés. Lots of clean benches to sit down and relax, and plenty of places to park bicycles.

This town square is a bit bigger than many in a town this size. It is home to a nice church, several cafes, and the start of a ten block area full of linen and cotton shops.

THE meeting place in VRSA. Lovely restaurants and cafes. Wonderful sculptures and paving. The church is small but worth a peak. You will find stalls selling local treats. Often the centre for fairs and concerts and also the focus for the Christmas village
