There is hardly anything left of the old town walls. They are not even very well indicated or easy to visit. All the restaurants and the mercado block the view.

We enjoyed going from the Museo Arqeoilogico after looking at the history of the city and then walking around the corner and there was part of the old city. It is always to imagine how it would have looked in the fifteen century. Very nice.

The castle was built in the 16th century. The castle replaced the previous fortification which was of Arabic origin. When you explore the "old town" it is likely that you will come across the castle. Really not that much to see if you compare with...More
