Good place to visit, a lot of restaurants, churches, old buildings. But very bad preserved. It seems that some buildings will fall down any moment. Some places, especially churches, are very well preserved, in huge constrast with the rest. Good atmosphere though.

This is the second time I've been here and although the main attractions are still beautiful the food area seems to have gone down hill a little and lost its charm.
