Just a wonderful ambiance walking around the quarter. There are many shops, restaurants, and bars, and the architecture is very cool. If you like architecture, or friendly city experiences, go.

This is a place you get lost in step into shops have a drink with some locals and have a few tapas. Make sure you wear comfy shoes it's definitely an old city.
