Every two years, the square serves as a stage for the world-famous Cheese Days Celebration that pays homage to the area's long-standing cheese making tradition.
The square and side-streets of downtown offer visitors a vibrant shopping district filled with eclectic shops, restaurants, bars and other attractions.
