  • The old city of Medina is very beautiful. You can walk between the walls and feel the Ancient atmosphere. Stop for a cup of coffee up on the wall and look for the best view. 
  • Beautiful place to visit we chose a public holiday and a lot of places were closed but it was nice just to wander around the streets on a lovely sunshine day 
  • Very clean, stunning views of the island, stroll the streets is like transaportarse to another era where the concern was to fend off pirates and keep built during centuries of history
