... nearby and had spent the day wandering the old streets so a treat was definitely in order. Meringues! Nothing like you buy in Sydney, multiple sizes to choose from ( we went for medium), crunchy on the outside and gooey on the inside. Not a crumb was missed!


Apart from eating memorable food, did go exploring. Cathedrals, a palace transformed into a university, a labyrinth of narrow streets and staircases that constitute ...

The Unfinished Chapels I thought look very impressive even without a roof. It's quite odd when you walk through the Monastery and next you have soldiers doing their funny walk (not as good as John Cleese)relieving each other at the tomb of the ...
