When you run the car according to the information display, the scenery where the roof-shaped houses gather in front of you looks overwhelming. There...More

The village was nationally recognised for the preservation of the thatched homes in the countryside. Many citizens continue to farm as their ancestors did but now may use modern tools. Some of the houses have been turned into galleries, cafes, temporary housing and museums. The...More
