In the old town, the air is filled with the sound of birds, pigeons mostly, who nestle in holes in the walls of the houses to escape the heat. Tourists achieve the same by diving into the churches that are sprinkled around the town. Looking up you will see storks atop the highest towers. The old town is clean and quiet, with only the odd car to disturb exploration of the cobbled streets. By far the majority of the tourists we came across here were Spanish.
The very attractive arcaded Plaza Mayor lies just outside the city wall, and in the evening, with the floodlighting, the wall was an impressive site and the plaza a delightful place to sit and eat. There are a number of restaurants to choose from, all offering good value menus. Do as we did and choose a different one every night! Due to the heat in August, it wasn't comfortable to eat out until quite late. We saw people arriving at restaurants shortly before midnight and still being served. We loved the atmosphere of the Plaza Mayor and its restaurants; it was relaxed and family-friendly.

I walked the old town after the tour buses had departed. Wonderful, lonely, dark, spooky and curious. Scared my hubby as he felt often that we were walking streets that edfed on dangerous. (I don't think so).
Allow plenty of time. The only way to get arond is your own two feet. Some efforts have been made to make the old town handicap accessible. Don't expect too much in that regard just now.
