Prostitution Information Centre information
Established by a former prostitute, the PIC provides frank information about the industry to sex workers, their customers and curious tourists. The small on-site shop sells enlightening reading material and souvenirs, and the centre runs an excellent hour-long walking tour (5pm Saturday, €15 per person, no reservations needed), which takes you around the neighbourhood and into a prostitute's working room.
In summer the group adds an extra tour on Wednesdays at 6.30pm. You can also peruse the centre's small library (aka 'sex work study centre') and have a snack (cake, coffee) in the lunchroom. Proceeds go to the centre.
