It has preserved its traditional and picturesque character, and is a village with a great nautical past and history. For this reason, the village has more of an
island characteristic about it.

The view towards the sea is magnificent, and the combination of the old mansions and the towerhouses of its Captains, sets a unique landscape.

The picturesque cobble stone paths invite you to take an interesting stroll through the this charming village that has changed little through time.
