We stayed in the centre of the old city and ate and walked around late at night. The atmosphere was great and the place was full of energy. Worth a stop when in northern Spain.

A lovely place to wander and admire the architecture and open spaces. There are a lot of interesting buildings - especially the Cathedral. Unfortunately the Plaza Mayor is being renovated the moment so the construction work detracted from the appearance of the place.

A beautiful city, I remember it bustling with life over 30 years ago, sadly pedestianisation and nothing but Tourists and Tapas Bars has killed the city and turned it into a very ordinary theme park.

A wonderful historic city with a multitude of different architectures, buildings that capture your imagination but Oh the graffiti it's a stain on the overall view of the city and leaves a poor impression. The City Fathers should clamp down on the graffiti hooligans before...More

I believe you can park free up by the castle or possibly just below (a bit closer to town) . Although a bit steep is a short walk from there to town center. Suggest you also send an email to the Tourist Office.
