Square is very quaint and historic so worth reading up on its history. There are restaurants and bars in the square although I would tend to avoid these as they are tourist traps. Would highly recommend seeing the square though.

We walked into this square and loved it, filled with bars and a lovely atmosphere of people relaxed and enjoying themselves. It was fairly busy on an afternoon so not sure what it's like on an evening.
