Nice looking building with attractive frescos along the side. Tower has marks to show the flood levels reached in different years going back to 1501.

Charming architecture which has been so well preserved. On a weekend, you may see quite a few wedding parties as the building is used for civil wedding ceremonies.

This can be seen from all over town and can be located by the Neo gothic clock tower where the heights of floods are recorded. The attached council hall is older, from the baroque period. You can also find the tourist information office here.
