The central square is the main element as far it concerns the social organization of public space and community life. This is the point where all the main streets and cobblestones end. In the same space one can see places which serve the needs of communication and cult.

The public fountains, scattered in the interior of the village, consist meeting spots which serve women communication needs. We can also characterize as public places, those  of worship , places which constraint , sanctify and confine community boundaries , as well as production places. In this case , a gender distinction is obvious. The boundary between the private and the public is determined by residences with outside benches that are conveniently located next to the main entry of the house. The boundaries between  private and public space are not entirely clear they are defined by the community ethos and the terms of collectivity. [2].
