Can't tell if this guy is "performing" here everyday, but on weekend he's always there, by the Our Lady's Cathedral. Pretending to be a part of the statue he's entertaining tourists all day long. I saw him there on my way to the port at around 11 am. He was still there at 6pm when I was on my way back to the train station . If the guy doesn't move you can hardly notice him. Once I saw how he scared a tourist who was posing for a picture hugging the statue, when the artist suddenly moved toward her she started running away screaming. It was a nice show ;-)
So if you're passing by the Cathedral take a look at the green statue if you see 4 men this means that one of them is the street artist.
