I went around asking for the Carmen (because on my map it wasn't clear) and everybody always said: all this is the Carmen. It's the whole old city!

When exploring the centre with all the attractions, you automatically will find yourself in Barrio del Carmen. It's a charming neighbourhood, filled with narrow streets, small squares, tiny shops, restaurants and cafes. Also lots and lots of street art.
