  • Excellent place to go slowly and to discover unique locales, where you can see everything and anytime. Not to be missed.

  • We visited here on a Friday and to be honest it was fairly dead. Only a couple of stalls open, hardly any people. Perhaps save your visit for a Sunday when apparently it is a hive of activity! 
  • Get ready to see a typical streets, is an antique shop where where the villagers sell ancient objects and used, have bakeries, butcher shops but no big deal. It has a café worth coffee time, the structure is younger, we ask a hazelnut mocha and vanilla are both very delicious.

  • A single market both for its architecture and antiques that can be found. It gets from a machine of cut salami to Tin soldiers. There are also sets of dishes, furniture, pictures, etc... We also have butcher, grocer, greengrocer and a local to take a coffee break. Very full for a ride and enjoy without any trouble. It has entrances on different streets
