Another historical neighbourhood, Patershol has been around for a while. It was a major cultural and religious centre in the Middle Ages, becoming a fashionable hangout during the modern era and then a slum in the 19th century. In the 20th century it was renovated and is now one of the chicest and most charming neighbourhoods in the city. The houses here dater from the 12th century; and you’ll find two medieval convents. Perfect for a stroll, you’re likely to be distracted by the wonderful scents wafting out of the many cafes and eateries.
