  • Beautiful! Love this place, it's charming and (at least when we went) not super crowded. Amazing effort to keep the town in traditional condition. Would love to come back during different seasons to see all its faces.
  • Truly beautiful and amazing town. The traditional style of the houses of the twon is preserved and walking there feels like traveling in time! Also people were hospitable and kind.
