This is well worth a visit. I can only describe it as unique, as I’ve never seen anything quite like it. In addition to the extensive ruins of three different structures on the sight, including a castle and two palaces, there are interesting informational displays...More

architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner

consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
