It's the main meeting point for locals, especially during the hot summer nights. People gather here to have a chat before moving up to Castello or to some club out of town; to sit in the terraces of the many cafes and bars, sipping cocktails or Sardinian beer; or simply, to have a walk while slurping a large homemade ice-cream. Piazza Yenne is also an important cross-roads, ideally placed between Marina and Stampace, just below the Elephant Tower, at the edge of Castello. Piazza Yenne is where the state road 131 from Cagliari to Sassari used to start from, and the statue at the center of the roundabout represents King Carlo Felice, who uses his left arm to point the way. Among Sardinians, the road 131 is still nowadays called la Carlo Felice!
