The city has a "divided" feel, since there runs a (in summer almost dry) river between two sides. I was told that the other side from where I stayed held the old town, that however suffered so much damage from an earthquake that no old buildings remained (I tried finding some anyhow and failed, there may be some remains that I overlooked). There seemed to be a large and modern extension of the city at that other side too, but I did not visit it.
This is a shot of one of the small bridges across the river (I have part climbed up the other side). There are large bridges for traffic of course, this is just pedestrian.
