Beautiful city! One of the nicest little cities I've encountered in my travels. Perhaps not as exciting for those on short term tourst schedules but a great city to stay in for awhile if you are on a longer journey. It is affordable, feels safe and has some nice restaurants to enjoy.

Quiet old town, with plenty of historic architectures and churches. The walk by the river is a must-do for families.

It was amazing! Cheap, unique, modern and very Americanized! This place makes me so happy.
