Great place to spend a day or so. Much to see and the windy streets are lined with all sorts of curiosities. Well worth a visit if you can find it is the cave cafe!! Lots of fish restaurants, old ruins and churches etc to visit.

Small streets covered with old stones. Churches, museums, fish restaurants, and a lot of tourists. If you want to see videos from this place, search youtube:... More
