Its a place in history, not a lot of changes over the years, still old world in places. Footpaths narrow make it difficult in places for those with disabilities. Also has a nice seafront with plenty of seats.

Wonderful old town where old protective walls still stand. Definitely worth the time to visit and see the walls and let your imagination run wild. Well worth the time to visit.
