Although the town has had to adapt itself towards the tourist demand, it has not lost any of its’ personality. Situated between the green of the mountains and the blue of the sea, the town has preserved its marked medieval flavour. This, combined with the beauty of its’ beaches, coves and countryside create a beautiful scene, further enhanced by cliffs and jagged rocks.
How to get here:
The S-63 slip-road off the A-7 motorway leads directly to the town as does main road 332. The town is also accessible by narrow-gauge railway and there is a good bus service.
