I loved this ancient butchers hall. It has been conserved with a light touch both inside and out. The inside of the roof is magnificent and the cured hams hanging from the beams are a nice touch. Inside is a modern glass capsule of a...More

Thanks a lot for your review and yes, we have also locals coming every day and eating in the restaurant or buying in the shop. Our local products are loved by everyone : tourists and locals! ;)
