The place is beautiful itself with fine architecture in surrounding cultural buildings and statue of Poseidon in the middle. It also offers nice view downhill to the Avenyn.

Finally, a reason to get off the tour bus. This is a nice public square that faces a busy boulevard. In its center is the statue of Poseidon, surrounded by the concert hall, a library, the museum of art and a theater.

It’s a nice square surrounded by a museum, a playhouse, a library. Has a nice statue of Poseidon in the middle, and some smaller Cafés a little down the road.
