la fontaine du soleil, messena square

our hotel was right in the city center so most places are within walking distance. the center of activity is relatively small so we walked around the old town, city squares, market and the beach with ease. here is the historic la fontaine du soleil, located in place massena, the city’s main square.

right across our hotel is the new promenade du paillon, a garden and water fountain park for all ages. very popular with locals and visitors alike. pia and i spent relaxing times here, people watched and enjoyed the dancing waters and the mist. such a happy and beautiful place. the locals were very pleasant and helpful and quite charming.
