The mail stagecoach has worked here since the seventeenth century, this way in the nineteenth century imperial turn led trail. Roads to the world reinforced the development of a small town. The town was founded in 1277. Through the centuries, through the work of residents living with a rich craft and trade. They always offered a welcoming hospitality.
