a good place to walk and enjoy the nature and old port . The river and the observation wheel. Around the sunset is the best time for going and taking fabulous pictures.

oddly enough, we found the old town because of construction. we are in a automobile club, so driving was mot an issue. we saw different parts of the city that way.
