  • Nice place, historical, natural and well preserved. Good rides in the vicinity of the ancient manufactures of fabrics that worked. We had lunch at the cozy Restaurant famous bucolic and Raymond without arm.

  • I visited the village on Tuesday. The Raymond restaurant Without arm was closed. Awfully hot. There were no people at the scene. I believe that at the end of the week, the village of Biri-Biri becomes a very good program. Especially for those who like a waterfall. Even though my experience has not been good, I recommend that you go. Worth knowing.

  • This tiny Village deserves to be visited due to the State of your spotless houses and the tranquillity of who is willing to stop at one of the two bars in the main street and be enjoying a mining food, accompanied by a geladissima beer.
