A must see. Beautiful stone carvings and statues. Visited in late October. Very beautiful time to admire the views, and weather was great. Take time after your tour to sit and enjoy a beer in their bar.

The old part of the romantic city is beautiful with most of the buildings made in the 17th Century. Our guide was very informative and we enjoyed walking on the bridge.
