Cozy town, but believe it or not it has 750,000 inhabitants I was told by our guide. The monastery is something to see and the surrounding narrow streets and shops.
A days worth of wonderful things to see within a one minute walk of each other! The plaza is terrific with a wonderful fountain and beautiful landscaping.

Great shopping, excellent dining options and much more await you in this charming and elegant ancient city.
