In the center of the village, you can also visit the Church of the Holy Spirit; the Cultural Center with ongoing and rich activities all year round; the Regional Museum and the Local Archive. You can also go for a swim in the local swimming pool and exercise at the gym. Why not enjoy a quiet afternoon at the Public Library and afterwards do some shopping in traditional shops? There is also a Tourism Office available for anything you need.
