The old colonial port area represents a well-preserved historic environment. The area is located at some distance from the new districts, thereby almost completely avoided the new development.
Therefore, one can experience an uninterrupted cityscape from the colonial era.
The development illustrates colony organization with trade buildings at the harbor. Some of the houses are particularly building historically and architecturally prominent.
Some trade buildings are a number of self-build houses. Builder’s houses have historical value, as they tell of past modest housing and living conditions.
