Island’s attractive spot

The most cosmopolitan road all over the island is well-known by its name “Liston”. It is located along Spianada Square and is known for its exquisite French architecture. There, you can admire the famous arcade arches, which are decorated with hanging lanterns on their centre. During Holy week, those gleam in purple shades creating a devout atmosphere consistent to Easter and bereavement.

Busy road with many options

A walk through Liston is enough to amaze you. There, you can enjoy relaxing moments in selected cafés, bistros and restaurants. During the 17th century, the road could only be walked by English aristocrats and nobles, who were written on the notable “Lista”, hence its name “Liston”. It attracts both locals and visitors, whereas every year philharmonic bands and processions of all churches are parading.
