I loved the woodwork in the theater and how it has survived for centuries. Once up on stage you are able to view the sculpture. The entire visit does not take long the theatre gives you a real sense of history.

The reconstruction efforts post ww2 are just simply amazing. City pride and the realization of its significance to the towns history make an awesome story. In the U.S. This would have been a huge WPA project. Must be seen when you come.
