It’s almost always worth to check out this little town. As for most of the things in life, it looks a little more inviting when the sun is shining, but that’s all. Make sure you don’t miss the farmers market. Some products are slightly cheaper or around the same price as in the supermarket but you don’t get it any more local or fresh than this.
