The whole area was very characterful with locals selling their beautiful handcrafts along the way. Don't miss buying the unique handwork, tablecloths etc, because you may not see items of this quality later during your visit.

It was interesting to climb the tower and the next-door former owner's house in order to understand how a sugar plantation was run in former days.

Even if it's a very touristic place, with the textils markets outside, it's something not to miss: to climb up the tower and with its 360 degrees views, go back in time, when the fields were filled up with working slaves.
