I walked though this area. There are a number of shop. A number of statues (European cites seem to love statues), and a number of places to each. It's interesting to walk and just look at the building. Nice

blend of charming old buildings and bold new

consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding
