This square is a beautiful Victorian building complex. It has been restored and adapted to modern times, but I have visited it at various times, and each time found it desolate. Many of the places in the square were empty and those that weren't empty were not inviting to come in. Perhaps in order to highlight the local university, there were some fun souvenir shops. Besides shopping, there are a couple of bars in the streets serving fast food and an Italian restaurant decorated with beautiful murals. There was an area of access to offices that was a bit busier, but still very empty for me to understand this strategic mall center in the historic center.
