This whole area is such a beautiful place to go for a long relaxing stroll while also learning some history. As well as the beautiful old buildings you'll also see a lot of native plants and birds.

City gate and fortified bridge built in the 13th and 15th centuries. Pretty cool piece of history that makes for a lovely little afternoon stroll.
