... fire prevention and firefighting techniques. There is now a museum dedicated to the history of
firefighting. We had a look around that and a few of the other things to see that we hadn’t seen on the tour, like the various (very upmarket) craft shops including a goldsmith and shoe maker.

Waterfalls came down the mountainsides at every bend in the winding road. The houses were quaint little chalets all with window boxes full of gorgeous colourful flowers. ...
