A little cafe with tables & chairs on the steps, in the corner, sells the most amazing ice cream flavours! Get the ferry boat here across the river.

Last century this is place where the ships delivered oil and other stuffs. The old buildings surrounding the place have straight stairs to fourth level to let the donkey climb to the elevated storage rooms. Today, good restaurants are there.
