... roads are small lanes which twist around each other. I love the town and haven't been anywhere like it. All of the buildings are different colours from one to the next which looks incredible.

The town is noticeably the most wealthy of the towns I have visited so far, with many jewelery and clothes shops. This wealth is driven by the history of gold and silver mines in the area, which we made our first stop of the day. The gold and silver mines of Valenciana, ...
