Nice enough if you're interested in art markets. Nice day out when the weather is not good for swimming, and it's right next to the N2 highway. (Last visit January 2016)

There are many interesting shops to visit. The craft brewery produces a variety of beers, my favorite being the "Blond" one. There are two coffee shops in the vicinity and both make a very tasty cupachino.
