We walked out of the busy city and up onto the walls and made the mistake of not carrying water! It was roasting in the heat and there are a step or two....! Thankfully we did drop in on a funny little cafe towards the...More

We also visited this place where a great view of the town opens for you once you get up. You can walk around and enjoy the quietness.

A nice way to get some exercise while also getting different views of the city. You can go up in several of the towers but not all nine. Be sure to bring water with you if you plan to ascend to the top of the...More
