  • ... to observe and admire the decorations, all different, these urns... Symbolic decorations, reflections of nature (birds, animals, atmospheric phenomena...), the work of men (crops, boats...) ... Each ornament is rich and interesting for who knows... watch and time: difficult when you're in an organized tour or with a guide... So, go one-on-one.
