Take the time to really check this entrance out. Working drawbridge with interesting stonework just inside the gates... a perfect spot for photos as you make your way into the Old Town.

Many city gates are just that, the gate, but this one is very interesting in the design, there is information about the town inside the gate areas and even some vendors set up in there. Pretty entrance to a really neat town.
