  • Lovely square with a playpark, fountain and plenty of lovely bars, restaurants and cafes. Went here most evenings during my holiday and it was a lovely atmosphere. there is a cash machine on the plaza itself and one 50 metres down one of the streets
  • An interesting ride up the volcano. You need to protect yourself from the UV and changes to the weather. You actually are not on the top, but few hundreds metres below. You will not be allowed to claim the top without a special permit. There are few walk paths near the upper station. Remember to keep the tickets as they are needed when you make your way down.
  • Like an Oasis rectangular park with good drink and eat possibilities with a Nice quality Ice Cream shop "Freddino", a worth to try.
  • A beautiful place were you have bars and restaurants and a play park for children. Somewhere that you can spend a few hours just relaxing in good surroundings.
  • A lovely little play area with a pirate ship to climb and various swings etc. We visited most days during our stay in the area. The photos I have included are from nearby streets.
