Shopping Centre
“Believe it or not, this is the first indoor mall in America and one of the places we alway take family and friend when they visit. The sloping floors, acoustics, and architecture will amaze you! On the outside of the building, look up and you’ll see marble carvings of the same person, both grotesque and comical. Rumor has it that the guy who was originally commissioned to do a lot of work, didn’t uphold his end of the bargain so it’s his likeness that’s there for all eternity. Great wine bars at both ends of the Arcade!”
