Pretty town, reminded me of a Medina in a town like Tangiers, not that there is the hustle and bustle of an North African town, but the white houses winding narrow streets, archways, external steps to the second floors evoked memories of Tangier

One of the three hilltop small walled hilltop towns in the area all within 15kms of each other, all different with simple charms as you wander through the narrow cobblestone lanes
