It’s full of interesting sites, a castle, a cathedral and a fortified wall up on the hill (to name only a few). I zipped these pretty quickly; I spent my time wandering around the backstreets. It here where you’ll come across the “Casa de la Julianeta”, a curiously constructed house, emblematic of the village’s architecture.
