O acesso gratuito é apenas para o pátio principal. Para as bibliotecas é necessário pegar fila (sempre grande) e há custo. A caminhada pela cidade vale muito a pena e há várias ruelas encantadoras. more »Free access is only to the main courtyard. For libraries it is necessary to pick up queue (always large) and there is cost. The walk through the city is very worthwhile and there are several charming alleys.
