there are fantastic buildings, the architecture is outstanding, gardens are beautiful to look at, a leisure walk is required to take in all around you. Very clean.

A beautiful place to visit, next to the beach, lovely gardens, great walks. Watch out for the processional caterpillars, can be deadly to digs and dangerous to children.

We and our friends walked around this beautiful castle. Very good location, just near the sea, beautiful park, nice to walk with children. Nearby place with penguins and seals. We have had enjoyable time there even the weather was not great at that day.
