This town is easy to visit by tram from Santa Cruz. The entire town is very unique and authentic mainly from 15th and 16th century. Colourful and pictoresque. Notable old buildings with special character.

Get a map to help guide you around this area. There will be entry fees to churches and museums. Lots of little cafes and shops there too.
