Nice and relaxed with no hassle. Lots of interesting artwork but the best bit for us was up on the roof where a craftsman was working carving a door and the views were stunning. A good place to wander.

What a wonderful way to spend the day. So much to see and buy. Lots of little hidden places to explore and venture into. Well worth taking the time to visit whilst in the city.
