  • We come upon this by chance. This ancient wall dates back to the 13th century. It is named The Great Wall. Very unusual piece of history. The surrounding area is gorgeous. Hard to stop taking...

  • Historical landmark. Surrounded by numerous vineyards. The weather and the landscapes were stunning. The whole town feels classic and elegant. It’s somewhere you’d like to retire in. But in May, tourists were already flocking here. Can’t imagine how crowded it might be in July and August. Luckily to visit before it gets crowded. Recommend to come visit between 8-10 am, when you can enjoy the tranquility in the idyllic area!
  • An interesting structure. Worth seeing if you are in the area but don’t take a special detour to visit.
