The historical buildings are fairly renovated and still in use today. The area has two vantage points, from where one has a nice view over the city.

Well worth the walk through the Castle District to take in the panoramic views this vantage point offers - look over the rooftops of the town and surrounding hills. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit!

you can have a lovely walk on the hill, where there are amazing old buildings. the view is also nice, but other than that there isn't much to see - unless you'd like to visit a museum or two
