  • We took a walk around town in the mid afternoon looking for the street art. It was quiet and we took really nice photos. Some paintings were faded but overall, they were really nice.  more »
  • Plenty of mural art paintings along the streets. Instagrammable photos against the blue sky. Go early in the morning as there is no shade at all and gets very hot during the day.  more »
