- The castles (Castillo de Santa Catalina and Castillo de San Sebastian)
- The churches (oh there are many)
- The parks, especially Parque Genoves if you’re travelling with kids. It’s known for its shaped big trees and has a playground
- The beaches (Playa de la Caleta, Playa Santa Maria del Mar, Playa de la Victoria), they are shallow so good for the smallest ones too
- The endless small alleys in the old town with shops, bars, restaurants, squares and churches
- Centro Comercial: El corte Ingles, there’s a small tivoli outside for the kids (closes at 10 in the evening)
We just took it easy. We enjoyed the most the air conditioning (a cool hotel room; it’s been really hot lately), the privilege to travel just with one child so no fighting (the other one was in Finland), eating out and taking long walks. Of course I enjoyed shopping too. And also we liked the fact that most of the tourists were from Spain. Nobody started talking English to me when I was talking Spanish to him/her:)What we didn’t like that much was the selection of breakfast in the cafes in the morning, and the price too. It seems to us that the Spanish never eat much during the morning since it was really hard to find a place where they’d serve anything else than white bread or croissants. Looking for an omelette (just with eggs) or fried eggs turned out into an endless search. Neither did they serve fruit or vegetables. They charged us 9-12 euros for an omelette/ fried eggs! So if you don’t like white bread or are a healthy, prudent eater, bring your own snacks with you. Although.. there were fruit shops in the old town, but I didn’t want to bring my own fruits with me to the cafes.
All in all a nice place to visit, with kids or without.
