  • 1521 founded (on 23 August...) and still intact. The inhabitants greet on the road, you know – despite the tourists. There's a model apartment and a Museum: look at worth.

  • It is the oldest urban colony of the world created by Jakob Fugger in the 16TH century. Some of their homes are currently occupied, but others such as the House of the bisabielo of Mozart can be visited. It is a very nice walk that is worth doing.

  • They are social houses made with funds from the banker Fugger, which even lent money to Carlos V. I think that they were made in the 16TH century, and were destroyed in the second world war, then rebuilt and still lives people who pay a small rent. In principle they were humble people of Catholic religion. It is interesting to see the shelters anti-aircraft, made in the 40s.
