With charming timbered facades on the buildings this is an idyllic place to wander about, take a coffee in the restaurants and eat the fine local cuisine. Visit the shops full of local arts and crafts. The Virgin Mary is said to have appeared in an apparition in a hawthorn bush in this village, hence the local procession each White Monday along a cross lined path to hear mass.
