          city and is home to amazing architecture and views.
          The hike to the top can be a challenging workout for
          those who forego a cable car ride, but they will be

          Sorry the pool was open when we stayed there. You can contact them by email and ask the question, if your unable to call. Even if it's not open when you stay there is plenty of things to do near by.
