There is a free shuttle into the town centre. It is a very pretty area and easy to walk. Had not intended to take the Hop on Hop Off but did. It is a shorter route than most cities but a nice way to see more of the city than you can walk to. No headsets on the bus, just a loudspeaker system that I didn’t like. Read Less

The port provides a free shuttle. Explanada de España is a beautiful walkway. We were there in the morning and able to enjoy it with only a few people around. Mercado Central was a bustling neighborhood market filled with locals. We enjoyed eating lunch at one of the stalls while people watching. Castell de Santa Bàrbara was a long hike, and we only had time to make it about halfway there. Being just that far up was a nice break from the city. Read Less

This was a nice port. We took the shuttle into the city and just strolled and took nice pictures. If we ever go back we will get ourselves up to the fort (or castle) on the hill.

Due to the price of shore excursions, we explored on our own, on foot. Pro's and con's of this is that you don't necessarily find everything, but equally you have your own unique day. Found our way to the castle which was ... Read More

A pleasant surprise, thinking it would be similar to further down the coast. A nice promenade with lots of stalls and places to eat but just off the sea front, lots of decent shops and history.

Shuttle only took a few minutes and was free into the entrance to the town. It was a Sunday, but we found a street market, plenty of places for Tapas and saw a Flamenco parade into Church. Plenty to do and see.

Booked an outside excursion and it was about 12 of us. We went to the castle and the views were great. The tour guide stopped about midway up said it was a really hard climb to go to the top, but my husband and I did it and were glad we did. We spent some time in the old town, went to city hall and a small museum showing the art for an annual celebration. Read Less

The tour bus here was not operated by the "ho-ho" company we had seen in the other ports, and was probably the best of the bunch. We were taken to the Castillo de Santa Barbara, and into the old town.

Just did our own thing and ended up climbing up to the Santa Barbara castle. It turned out to be a great place and a beautiful view.

With photo id the elevator is free for anyone over 65 but the elevator doesn't open till 10am. We walked down from the castle and toured the town. One interesting street had huge mushrooms painted red and white. Read Less
