We saw a lot of old houses which were falling apart, not so much of those well refurbished that are on the brochures.

A lovely cool place in the summer for a stroll that will take you back into turkeys past. Locals love taking their wedding pics here. Very picturesque.

What incredible architecture. Kit was a little boring for the daughter but I found it very interesting. Many refurbished buildings and interesting for the architects and designers out there.
