Not really those spectacular one. However, on a good fine day, strolling around can be interesting. Nice buildings. Just avoid Sunday as in other places here since things will be shut.

Worth a viist! The architecture in the old city is impressive and worth the time it takes to read up on each of the unique buildings, many adorned with impressive artwork. Overall a very pleasant city to visit.
