  the old Library
by Shibiru

It's a nice place to see...the church is beautiful and the library has really old books. You have to pay a small fee to get in and than you put some special shoes on and get in.
The building is still very old from ancient centuries and there's always some kind of exposition. When I went there they were showing an old Mummy.
There are always lots of really old books...and you can follow the history of book development, from hand printing 'till the real print.
