It's very nice to walk in this old town with preserved architecture and old church. This is the most old town in Europe.

We've been to many Old Towns in many places, and this is one of the most charming. The streets are paved with stones (not cobblestones) which makes walking a bit treacherous, but it's worth it to see the houses (some of which can be visited).

The main attraction is the old town, with its pedestrian streets paved with uneven cobblestone. Just to walk there and have a look around at the old 18th century houses is pleasant.
