  • A simple but undoubtedly imposing structure that actually is well placed to be considered the gates to the old town. It seldom fails to provide great shots, so have your cameras ready when you visit!
  • A nice arch at the start of a cute walking street. Quite packed with tourists but you aren't harassed.
