Beautiful nicely maintained wooden bridge. Take a short walk and enjoy river and town views.There are many religious and historic related paintings in the rafters. While crossing, stop and take pictures of the views along with flowers on both sides of the brigde.

Good walking place and nice views from restored bridge. Original one burnt after a cigarette fire, now no smoking allowed on bridge to protect what is left of artwork
