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

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.

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

It was destroyed by Eartquake and never rebuild since. There is no charge to visit it, actually you will walk in the middle of the small sized cathedral to access a nearby park in the old jew quarter of the medieval city or akantia gate. Only the arcs of the east side reminds what was this place built for, actually... More

On our way out to the ship we saw the cathedral and went through it and was very sad that it was not well preserved because it has history and very sure it was a beauty.
