The colorful ‘old town’ with bougainvillea growing everywhere, street-corner restaurants, and beautiful architecture are definitely worth a visit. Pretty shops selling shoes, clothes, wine, food, gifts and more, line the narrow cobblestone streets. There are lots of little cafes and restaurants and all of them are lovely. Although there are many tourists in the town, there is still a fantastic atmosphere and you should not feel crowded at all. I think the atmosphere in the town is just fantastic.
Plaza de Los Naranjos (Orange Square) – photos above – in the historic city center is the perfect place to stop for a refreshing drink after some extensive sightseeing and walking around.
