Always pleasant to explore the old town and the ancient city walls and gates. This is one of the four gates that are still in the old city center.

This archway into the town is a bit of history. The town itself is lovely with lots of places to sit or have a coffee. There are quite a few shops and market stalls. There also is a lovely local church. Worth a visit.
