I know this place thanks to an Instagramer. Most of his photos are only about this place which makes me really curious. Actually, we could go to the top of this, but it costs more than 5euro (as I remember). Great place to take photos.

It's well worth wandering down this narrow pedestrianised street and passing under this ornate clock. There is also a clock tower that you can go up but we did not do this. The clock looks strange as it is very difficult to see any hands....More

Fantastic 14th century clock and bells. €7.00 entree great value. Audio commentary in different languages. Well worth a visit. Great views from the top of the bell tower. Small spiral staircase to get up in the tower may not be suitable for poor mobility.
