This little turistic place is very charming, extremely touristic, but awful if you come with a wheelchair, it was for my grandmother like a punishment to walk in those streets!

This is a really nice and restored 15th-18th century city and one of the most beautiful in Spain. Definitely worth a visit, hopefully it will be on a sunny day!

They were practicing for an upcoming fiesta and it was great to watch. Cobblestone street leading up to it, interesting to see people walking on cobbles in very high heel shoes.

Very popular with visitors so expect it to get a bit crowded. At night it is fine and well-lit, so a good time to visit.
