While walking through the old town is impossible not to come across this beautiful square. The Baroque style Obelisk of the Immaculate Conception is located in the center of the square and is dating back to the middle of the 17th-century. The square is enjoyable at every hour of the day and night it’s a popular meeting point for the young Neapolitan who attend the schools of the old town and for the large number of bars and restaurants that characterize it. Among these, the “Hopea caffè 900” a perfect place to taste an excellent coffee or a happy hour.
