Since the shop inside is housed in a legitimate historic monument, you'll find the quality of the goods offered (as well as the prices) to be higher than the usual, as one would expect. I bought a number of tapestry pillow-covers that were easy to...More

Just watching this house from outside is very nice. The little square outside makes it also possible to take good pictures, which many tourists did. It is an old house having an interesting history, and a good example of old, wooden houses in the town.
