Here you will find plenty of small cafés and shops that enhance the feeling of having travelled back in time. A place of strategic importance, the city boasts four different fortresses, all built between the 15th and 17thcentury. Fans of Game of Thrones will be able to recognise the fortifications as well as the cityscape, used as the setting for the magical city of Braavos.
