Lovely ruin

Not too much to see here, but the ruin is lovely. The cathedral ruin is close to one of the city gates and is well worth a walk by.

The ruins of this old church are also known as "The Church of Saint Marie du Bourg" There is not a whole lot left of the building, but it is still worth having a look at and walking around.

Another example of a semi-well preserved ruin. Right beside an AWESOME seafood restaurant! Can see the sea through the street/walls.

A great sight to see, it is very packed with tourists, however its worth it to see. The castle is filled with many souvenir shops, cafes, restaurants, art shops etc. It is a great place to walk around and take in the amazing architecture and history. Directly outside the castle you could stroll down the harbour. Its is really a... More

We stumbled upon this beautiful ruin by accident on our travels through the old town; the area is busy and bustling with shops and cafes (the area is very touristy, but we spent the whole afternoon in this area). You get a sense of what a stunning building it once was and we spent around 15mins walking around it, marvelling... More

The cathedral practically doesn't exist anymore, although it still has a certain beauty to it. On a hot day, you can get some rest in the shade of its destroyed walls and imagine what the rest of it looked like.

The old town is a bit touristy, but the castle is very impressive, I like the harbour area where you can walk to the aquariam at the end. Even the new town bit is pleasant and some good shops and cafes in the side streets. Their are a few restaurants in the old town which look good but didnt eat... More
