Lovely old buildings, atmosphere and views. Obvious care needs to be taken on the cobble stones. Worth a visit.

Our first impression from the old town was from watching the impressive old town walls from the beach. Later we walked across the narrow alleys of the old town with charming shops, coffee shops and the views to the charming beachs.

Lovely cobbled streets and interesting architecture especially the doors. Look up as you walk along them.

Lovely walk but make sure you have flat shoes as paths are cobbles. Beautiful old town to explore lots of details to see.
