Does not exist

Pity as I was looking forward to it. Unfortunately it seems that it does not exist any more. We went and asked and now there is an arts and old crafts exhibition instead.

Apparently, you have to visit a place to review it... But, this butterfly house is no longer there. Walked around the square where it used to be, but there is no trace

Tried to visit this place but no one knew about it. Then we asked the Tourist Information Office and was told that it was no longer there. Pity.
