Interesting monument in a prime location. There are two restaurants right next to it, bearing the same name. Eat in one of them, the food is amazing and the service very friendly.

A nice statue on a lovely square, for pictures a bit hidden between the umbrellas of the teracce. We found it while walking a geocaching tour. Which brought us to a range of lovely spots in Munster
