A very attractive series of old buildings clustered around a large courtyard near the top of the old town. The timber-work and decoration is worth some study.

Well I'd like to advise you but sadly we arrived here a day before it was due to reopen.All I can say is it looks most interesting, it's close to the cathedral so maybe you will get luckier than us.
