Many buildings will have their creators there ready to talk you through the inspiration for the buildings construction and any other interesting anecdotes or information relating to each building. The types of buildings on offer to visit vary from old libraries, private houses, hotels and much more, all dotted around the ten ‘barrios’ of the city.
