The whole Old Town is quite well preserved, especially the walls and best of all it is really large, so you can walk around the remains of churches, homes, etc. Entrance fee is only 2 Euro

We've been there in early Autumn, which proved to be a wise choice as it gets terribly hot during the Summer. As this is a rugged Mediterannean terrain, don't expect lots of a shade. The Old Town is a nicely preserved place, with numerous remnants...More

The old city is an enjoyable afternoon out. The walled city is in ruins which have been partially restored. The museum is small and city fairly well marked. Entry was inexpensive and the view was beautiful.

This is a lovely fortified town that is a great walk with views. If you go at sunset the buildings take on a pink/orange cast. Notcrowded at all this time of year.
