If you don't have much time, it's not a "must visit" place. some shops are closed and besides 2 cafés and 2 toy shops you don't have much to see.

A modern days market for regional and handycraft products and articles. Not very big and easy to visit and see without rush.

Head here for a number of reasons: tours led by students of the old town, very cheap and proceeds go to help poorer students. Good gift shop, profits for the same good cause: and your tour ends with a glass of wine and a cookie....More
