The history here and all over town is quite impressive. I would recommend a guided tour or previous research/familiarization for this one, as the self-guided experience is under-developed.

Hi sorry I’m not sure of the closest, if you ring the hospital they will tell you though. You will be ale to drop off your elderly patient at the door. Sorry I couldn’t be of more help. I used taxis when I was there.
