Cheese market in

Show Map
The original commercial cheese market, as it was held here for a long time, was cancelled in the 1920's. In 1989 it was re-installed, mostly of course for touristic purposes. It is held only in July and August, on Wednesdays, and organized largely by volunteers. Although a bit of a, well, cheesy tourist attraction, the market is still fun to see. It's become a folklorist event, with traditional costumes worn for the occasion, music and games. Explanations are given in English, too.
