Just behind the Sea gate. Lovely old square with shops, bars and cafes. Great place to sit and watch the world go by once you have seen all the interesting churches and buildings.

This opens up as you enter the sea gate. A busy area with tour groups gathering. Architecturally very attractive with cafes shops and narrow roads leading off into the city. It was very busy when we arrived so didn't linger too long.

Mountain View’s from a protected old-town surrounding, can’t beat the ambiance. A great place to relax and enjoy before you begin your trek through old town.

The square meets you after having entered the Sea Gate. The Town Clock stands there among the old buildings. Good to know that a rare public toilet is very close to the square.

As soon as you walk into the old town through the main gate you will see the Piazza of The Arms It's a nice place to spend time but back streets in the old town are generally more interesting and cheaper for food and drink.
