A city being rebuilt passed its former glory into something greater than before. An influx of money from Bridgetown has turned this small-time trading part into a boom town. New businesses are popping up every day, taking advantage of the heavy traffic that passes through the city.

- Fort Areno- An important rebel stronghold during the Great Civil War, it held the longest during the siege of Bridgetown. Local legend has it that when the king’s army came to sack the village, the mechanism that opened the gate broke, trapping the villagers outside. An enraged farmer, fearing for the safety of his friends and family, single-handedly lifted the gates and let the people inside the fort. Just as the enemy approached, his strength gave out. He managed to say with his final breath “Let the will of one stand against tyranny” before the gate crushed him. In his honor the people erected a statue of the man known from then on as “Matthew the Lifter”.
- Riverside Market- A bustling community of mostly tent-based merchants. Sellers from up and down the river stop here to unload some of their wares and bolster their bankroll.
