  • It is a large area with great potential but not exploited as it should. Some areas, such as the Castle, are deteriorated and is not always completely clean, above all on Sundays people mess much with the fair. They are now fixing the part of the Lake, hopefully better. While it is nice, as tourists would not come especially to this place, unless you have the time
