“Felt Free to Browse”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

The cloth hall is a great place to buy all your touristy bits. Stall owners don't make you feel pressurised or actively try and sell you everything like tourist places in other countries. As a result ended up buying more because I was trying to get out quickly!!

“Beautiful building”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

Beautiful building shame about the awful touristy shops contained in it. If they would only remove the awful stalls selling tat it would be a wonderful place.

“Very pretty gothic building”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

Sits in the middle of the main market square, with caves and outdoor seating. Pretty little gallery running through the middle with lots of little stalls selling local crockery, leather goods, amber products and the like.
