The "museum" is a really sad atent to display art, and the gardens are so small you just don't need to walk around. The church is the only part thats looks nicer! but that you an can visit without paying (thats my recomendation)

This is a beautiful calm place where you can relax in the shade, take some photos before you go to the beach

This monastery at the end of the town beyond a little beach is a hidden gem with lovely cloisters. A must see!

We didn't pay to go in the museum part but had a wander around the church. Worth popping in while you're walking by.
