The cobbled streets wind between whitewashed historical homes, numbering 173 in all. Discover the multitude of craft stores and shops that now give life to the area.

  • This part of the city seems out of a story. All neat, from the facade of the houses up to the gardens. Beautiful to walk a while and move is mentally to another world.

  • Beautiful, cozy place with old history from the city. Nostalgic and fun atmosphere. Recommend a guided visit!

  • Strolling through the streets of the old town, you can experience the amazing climate with beautiful white domkom. It is a pity that almost all the time and you can't enjoy the longer walk:)
