A Nice idea this to paint the pilons (bollards to you and me) different colours and styles. It certainly brightens up the street and makes a talking point. That said, this is something to walk through on your way to somewhere else and not really...More

We found it by accident, and we were glad to find it.Really interesting place. Good really! A lot of colors. All the pilons colored different!

The pilons are nice, decorated in a funky way, but don't go here especially for those, because it's nothing wow. Besides this, the rest of the street is not lively at all and it wasn't really clean either when we were there.

We kind of just found this by accident when walking around. Definitely a cool thing to see, so if you have the time, it only takes a little wandering to get a look.

this street gives a sense of local culture or at least the local art community. The pilots are all different and it can be an interesting walk to follow them along the street. If it is a hot day the street even affords some shade.

This street is situated in the old medieval town, apparently local artists are given the opportunity to paint one of these posts in their own style. It's a bit of an odd site for it's location but it's different.

Each of the Pilon's is painted different. There are some very interesting ones and some not quite so. Worth a walk down when in the area.
