“So close to the bustling sea front and yet a world apart.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Narrow cobbled streets, small squares, quirky shops, great restaurants, wonderful for a lengthy stroll and a relaxed lunch. Just a couple of minutes walk from the beach.

“Lovely to stroll around the narrow passages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

It's lovely to walk around the old town at any time of day. It's great to get lost and come out somewhere new. Recently I discovered the old city walls by chance.

Of course it's great to go to Orange Square with all its lovely restaurants. The smell of orange blossom fills all the streets around and there are many new shops in the last few weeks, so a good sign of a resurgent economy.

“Nice for a small neighborhhod walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Spend a little time walking the streets of the neighborhood. The selection of restaurants is good and there are a few jewels to stop in to, like Il Tartufo.

“Super cute!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Old town is a fun little area to shop and hang out. We went through it many times and loved it. We would go to the market, olive oil tasting place, bakery, local cafe, we did it all. Would recommend taking a stroll through and enjoying your time in Spain.

Spent a long time walking down the small alleyways and looking at the shops. It really felt quite magical discovering the old area.
