Fue decepcionante llegar al punto de encuentro y no ver a nadie, ni que nadie nos avisase de que el tour no iba a realizarse.

Quizás por el clima (lluvia) paseamos poco por la ciudad vieja. Me faltaron datos curiosos, leyendas, historias del pueblo. Pero en general bien y con el plus de la visita al Catedral que me sorprendió
