A great way to spend a day. We arrived on out tour and ate lunch at a local restaurant. Many shops are located here for window shopping. Highly recommend a visit to this area.

many styles to suit every taste. Artist on site often working while minding the shop. Friendly, reasonable prices for original art. A must visit when wandering the streets of the old city!
