No they're not. There are countless small roads just off any of the main roads around the city, that have some abysmal cobbles.
All the cobbles in the city centre are wonderfully maintained and most wheels and tyres will have no problem riding over them, even to the extent that I find riding there very relaxing.
The rough cobbles out of town on the other hand....the cobbles aren't always set at a consistent height, with there being a difference of several inches at times. You'll want strong tyres and rims if you ride on these at anything over walking pace.
