    This bench is just great to rest if you walk by foot since the lower part of the village. The village starts in a lower part having the rest of the houses and the centre on the top of a hill.

    Unique Suggestions: Enjoy, relax.

    Favorite thing: This street scene is the lower part of the village. The majority of the village's old buildings are situated on top of the hill or going up the hill. Very interesting. You have to climb a bit.
