Today, in memory of those times, port is the location of several souvenir shops. There are also several food pavilions there, the majority of which sell seafood.
A remarkable fact about this town – the majority of the town’s streets and pedestrians and cyclists only.

The mummy was brought to the city by one of the local archaeologists.
