This historic village used to offer tours to the public for a small fee, however due to economic circumstances they are no longer able to fully keep up the area which is good news for those not wishing to spend quite as much money on their vacation this year. The tickets are now free, but because of this, reservations cannot be made as often as needed. Tourists and various school classes alike visit this village to learn about history and to just enjoy themselves and have a good time.
