  • It somehow reminded us of the past. That's how we would imagine it was in the past. Small shops with different repair services and other things to see. 
  • In the shadow of the immense walls of the icudad and a few steps from the Central station, this small set of lanes is located with beautiful shops with hand-crafted items and small restaurants. Everything is very careful and the atmosphere is very nice. Not to be missed.

  • Some interesting shops, pewter tankards was a highlight. Some nice little pubs in this area with a nice atmosphere.
  • it's very touristy here but really nice to see and spend some time to look through the shops around
  • A pleasant enough place to walk through and have a look but the shops are relatively touristy. If you are really after some local craft, you would be better finding some specialty shops. Having said that, it is convenient having everything in the one place and there are some nice things here if you look beyond the non-local mass-produced stuff that some shops are trying to sell.
  • Medieval village with small craft shops and restaurants.
  • Great for a day trip.
