I really enjoyed looking around here, first, on the Petit tourist train, and then on foot.

When on the Petit train, it really brought home, how narrow the alleys were, we only just fit! All sorts are here, from shops, cafes, very old buildings, street arches, statues and fountains. An interesting building was the Witches tower, a part of the fortifications of the old Town.

On Fridays, a weekly market is held where crafts and local products are sold.
The Markets are held from 8am to 2pm, March to October, and from 9am to 2pm the rest of the year.
