  • Well-preserved buildings, cobblestone, cleanliness and order, rejoice to walk! Unique downside, the inevitable odors from feces of horses dragging many wagons with which make tourists rides. To God, you will not see them on the road, horses carry special bags to collect them, but as to say picked up in there and smell ... too!
