It is a symbol of this city, and its red exterior is due to the fact that it was built using sandstone taken from the mountains of Verges. The impact when it appears in front of you from the middle of the city is overwhelming. The light from the chandelier shines beautifully in the dimly lit interior. The astronomical clock mechanism moves from 11:30 to 12:30, so don’t miss it.
