Off the main square and interesting style building. Have a quick look. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby. The tourist office is opposite.

Wandered through here and saw some exhibits of local children's artwork, but couldn't fail to pay attention to the amazing architecture here. Completely free and worth a visit.
