It’s a beautiful place to wander around, admire the boats & take in the historic scenery. Worth a walk to the lighthouse for the beautiful views over the bay.

Nice walk in the evening along the shore. You can stop anywhere for a quick bite or a cocktail. Lots of souvenirs shops and handmade jewelry stores.

In this part of the city you can find the story of this town but not only... there is a fusion between the history and the modernity so you can live the city in all its aspects?
