We went on this tour on the advice of the tourist office and it was very good as it took in all of the major attractions and sights of this beautiful town. It wasn't too tiring and you could go at your own pace.

We went for the tour of the towers conducted by a pretty young lady. She did the tour in English. The tour cost 3 Euros. Good for knowing about the history of the area and why there's a big crack on the tower.
