- The Central Market is not far from the covered market. A former outdoor market, which rather than being transformed into yet another gigantic shopping centre, has been converted into an art and craft market.

The museum presents the Country's historic and cultural legacy and features interesting collections dedicated to culture, natural history, ceramics, arms and music.
