The area offers wonderful views of water, vegetation, history, and spectacular architecture. The waterfront and parks are a perfect location for your morning walk or a romantic evening stroll.

This charming, picturesque campus, in the heart of downtown, is a must see. Truly beautiful. It is obvious why a number of movies have been filmed here, especially in the main area, called the Cistern.
