  • My visit was a little hampered by the bad weather in part of the day and by the interdiction of part of the streets of the historic centre because of the Game of Trhones recording. The trucks and vans of film crew tbém spoil the scenery in the Plaza Mayor. It's still a beautiful city that deserves a visit.
