One of the world's most beautiful areas I've seen. I was here around noon, during siesta. There are few tourists, peace, silence, tranquility, historical mood. Amazing, wonderful place.

We enjoyed strolling through this beautiful square. As it was a weekend, there was an antique market going on, which made it even more interesting. This is the heart and center of this lovely, historic town.
