It is a part of what gives this town its unique charm. Take in all the sites and revel in the centuries old buildings which have withstood time and the horrors of war.

Certainly all the tourist brochures show you this view although theirs manage to show a quiet tranquil setting. More than likely it will be teaming with people all trying to take photographs. The result of having a picture postcard setting.
