This old gateway into the city is very picturesque. This city maintains its tourist attractions very well and it remains eye catching.

It was a pretty route between the train/bus station and the city center. It is a very easy walk with beautiful architecture like this gate.

Often there are musicians or opera singers performing here. Art works for sale along the walls, close to many shops and restaurants.
