The honey-hued tones of the stone buildings, intriguing streets and attractive courtyards will have you reaching for your camera, and it's not hard to see why painters are drawn to the town.
On Mondays, the lively outdoor market offers the opportunity to pick up all manner of things, from food to gifts, while the livestock market gives a true taste of the countryside with its authentic auction ring.
