  • The course is situated in the middle of the city. He is very beautiful with its green areas and statues. From him, you have super views of the surrounding mountains. Around the square there are many banks and Reiseargenturen. Cafes and bars near the square are what I missed, to the relax. Also, the course is along a dense busy road, so that you can be so calm.

  • In the center of the city. It has financial offices close and a very assorted memorabilia Market. Pity the Cathedral is still under construction.

  • I have returned after years and I see improvements, but these require maintenance to remain attractive. Currently this Cathedral in maintenance and that removes much attractive. At night it is very dark. With money from the mining Canon can make many improvements.
