Reviewed November 5, 2012

Very happening place in the evenings - seek out the small bars for the best value and wander from one to the next for a varied experience

“Architecture, shopping, and tapas!”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Named the old town, it makes you truly feel like youre in Old Spain! Great people watching, funky shops, and lots of local places to grab a bite. The whole family enjoyed the day here. (Kids 19 & 17)

“Nice dowtown area”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

Some buildings around but probably will not justify the hassle of going all the way to there. I actually skipped it the first day and only went there on my way back when I had some spare time before my flight.

“Too crowded to appreciate it.”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Perhaps we picked the wrong time - early Saturday evening - but we went looking for a restaurant and could only find bars. Everywhere was packed and we couldn't find anywhere to sit and soak up the atmosphere.

A lovely part of a lovely city.
