  • Very little museum but well maintained and the house is a must for Ancient house lovers We were lucky as not many tourists were here so we could have many explanations from locals 
  • This tiny place is very dusty and sparsely decorated. The building is amazing. Go up to the top floor and look out the balcony. There is also a very friendly dog.

  • Good
  • Great destination
