Quiet and relaxing place

Go at dusk and the lighting is beautiful. We went twice at different times of the day. It's peaceful and beautiful though we did go after Christmas so the lights were up and the crowds were less.

A must visit - very different. The buildings and churches are just something else. Short walk from city centre.
