  • Dont miss to walk around this place. The Houses (“Villas”) have a particular hybride style. It’s a mixing of different times, places and architectural styles so the result is quite eclectical. Most of this houses were built mainly at the end of the XVIII siecle.
  • Very nice part with old villas.
