... worth a visit. Although I'm not in favour of bull fighting it is a part of the culture here and so a visit was in order. There are also some old Moorish baths and a Bandeleros museum - apparently Robin Hood style bandits sought refuge here in the many cliff side caves. Fascinating place, charming and pretty. Last night we found an Irish pub and watched the rugby - Australia vs Argentina. Atmosphere was terrific and we were very pleased Australia ...

After lunch we walked around the city center but it was siesta so we watched tennis in the Irish pub, then did a little shopping when the stores were open again.
We found another fabulous restaurant for dinner. It was just at the bottom of our street, in a large plaza. A few restaurants in the plaza had tables and chairs out. The one we wanted was very popular and didn't have many tables so we had to wait 20 minutes, but it was worth the wait.
