  • The buildings look really good and fascinating in person. Didn't get to go inside but should go visit. Also, it's free guided tour.
  • Beautiful historic buildings 🙌🏻 Well worth visiting. Most of these photos were taken with two tour bus loads of people wandering around, so even when busy you can get a clear shot.
