  • Gorgeous courtyards between many buildings on this historic street. Everything has a cinematic quality to it and most have been so well- preserved.

Though coffee/tea prices were on the higher side but for such romantic spots it was well worth it. We managed to find a cafe that has courtyard seating.. hmm..'In the mood for love' anyone?
  • A gorgeous street with lots of medical stores! There’s really lots of amazing goodies to be found in this area. I recommend those who are looking for medical stuff, cafes, food to come here. There’s a visitor center that can recommend how to walk around this place and the history.
