its lovely old town, with narrow streets, unique architecture with big wooden doors and alcoves that hangs over the streets. But not really that impressive. A few hours and it is done for. But then, I did not go to LP for the old town.

Plenty of Tapas bars to stop off and relax a while and you're only a wee walk from the hussle bussle of the city center shops!... More

You can wander in the small streets of Vegueta, and you think you flown back some hundred years. The houses, the colours, the cathedral, the Colon Museum all are very nice to see
