It's interesting if you want to see this type of architecture, but it's really small and we walked through it in a minute. There's nothing else much to see but some pubs/cafes/stores. I wouldn't go out of my way to see this place. It's next...More

Great place to have a coffee through the daytime or a drink after work. It was extremely busy after 5pm. Really nice shops and cafes and eating places set in a beautiful location

If you want to know what they do during the late evening check this place out. A lot of stores and people having social drinking sessions. Aside from the great design of the place you will see a little glimpse of their everyday life.
