This historical church is beautiful and stands just outside to old towne walls. There is a wonderful square with beautiful flowering tress and benches to relax and enjoy the scenery.

Fun little museum with an eclectic mixture of exhibits from Neolithic finds to an exhibition of modern photography We enjoyed the models of local fishing vessels and techniques although this is probably not of interest to all. The attached baroque church is fine of its...More
