Interesting city, with an medieval fort at the harbour, a bull fighting arena and several other old buildings within the city. The streets an buildings in the city center look nice, small streets and old houses let you breath a piece of history. You can choose under within several restaurants and bars, serving also traditional spanish food or just chill out in a bar. Also a lot of shops are there, interesting to look at and its not only the touristic crap.
So the city is wort a visit. Going there by car can also be interesting.
