This jumble of 14th- and 15th-century architecture with its medieval walls, needling spires and twisting, cobblestone streets is also the site of many of the city's important historic attractions and museums including the House of the Brotherhood of the Blackheads, St. Catherine's Guild and the 15th-century Guildhall that now houses the History Museum.

Fun to see the city walls, narrow streets, cobblestone streets and walls, narrow buildings and lots of people out and about. History and culture at its best in a small country with an interesting history. Lots of cafes, restaurants and coffee shops.
