Things to do

Visit a Handicraft Workshop

From the time you arrive in this picturesque town, the street lights and benches indicate the leading role of copper here. And it is even clearer when you enter the workshops that smelt, then cut, and finally hammer the red-hot copper into the desired shape and engrave it with the marvelous figures that set it apart. This process is used to create pitchers, plates, ashtrays, and vases in a whole range of sizes. There are workshops and shops on every street where you can stop and watch, then pick out a copper memento to take home.
