It is said that artists such as Pablo Picasso, Vincent Van Gogh, and Salvador Dali worked in this area. This festive district is consumed with small restaurants, painters, and live instrumental music.

      • I have! But am itching to return to the city. Your first photo is so reminiscent of an afternoon I spent there getting portraits made with a friend. The painter over charged us, but we were enjoy ourselves too much to care.
