A former convent, this is now full of shops and galleries. It is a great place to explore. The shops are full of locally made items, some of them very reasonably priced. The building itself is lovely and very well maintained.

I'm not sure there are still eleven patios, but enough to see - and buy - to be fun. Items are above-average quality and a great variety.

Large building with many rooms displaying local crafts. If you can't find something in these rooms, you do not need it.

I believe it is open every day although the specific merchants may have different hours. I would not go on Sundays as that tends to be a family day.
