Nice town, obviously interesting to see the difference on one side of the border to the other some nice roads to get good views. Recommend a visit to the graveyard to see some famous headstones.

We were pleasantly surprised to see a children’s festival. The church was just beautiful. We would have liked it if there was more information about a tour guide. We explored on our own.
