  • A truly magnificent monument! too bad all that attaches is also expensive as surely as more individuals and families could go without breaking: o / but if you don't go visit outside it's free (except for the parking of course!) I'm very happy to have finally visited this beautiful place. A must see!

  • Nice walk over walls that cut through the old city. Really recommended a ride, since there is not much else to do.
