An old palace, converted somewhat incongrously into a gallery of modern installation art.
Many churches still had ornate stages remaining from the Easter celebrations
This extraordinary piece of architecture is the Central produce market, and was built in the late 20th century!
Hidden away, a little circular market selling only fabrics and haberdashery
Fighting for space - residential buildings and shops are built right up against churches
How many churches can you have in one city square? Traffic is chaos and getting sightlines is tricky
The cathedral - home to some magnificent art, and its most precious item, the Holy Grail
It's impossible to get a view of the whole building - this is the entrance at the east end
Yet another view. The building is a complex mix of early mediaeval and baroque architecture.
