  • It looks overwhelming at first, but it's easy to navigate. Restaurants with terraces, and shops line the square, and in the evenings, food vendors set up selling fruit juices, all kinds of traditional dishes, and pretty much anything else you can think of. There's entertainment in the form of games, musicians, snake charmers, and monkeys, the later 2 of which I don't endorse. But overall it's a great place to spend the evening and people watch.
  • Big touristic Square with lots of local products and artists. There are numbered sections with fish, meat and fruit where you can eat very fresh and delicious food very cheap. Be aware that looking like a tourist people are all over you to get them into their food place or buy products. Always friendly but can be too much sometimes.
