Very central location, nice view of the central square. Sit outside and see what they offer today. menu might change but quality is very decent and prices are low.

This little turistic place is very charming, extremely touristic, but awful if you come with a wheelchair, it was for my grandmother like a punishment to walk in those streets!

This is a really nice and restored 15th-18th century city and one of the most beautiful in Spain. Definitely worth a visit, hopefully it will be on a sunny day!
