  • So beautiful view that I and my wife wanted to take our picture by my camera. Soon I asked a native old gentleman near by to take a picture for us.

  • This is in the oldest, most historic part of the city. And even in the winter it's worth visiting. There are some really breathtaking views that you can see from here. You can see much of the rest of the city, as well as the valley below. Looks very beautiful at night. Great spot to get some panoramic shots or pictures for cards to send back home.
