The city generates a pleasant, energetic atmosphere emanating from its rich history and modern wealth. Fishing trawlers return from a day’s excursion and dock in the harbor. Their masts sway in the sea’s gentle wake. Gothic towers encircle cobblestone plazas and nearby castles have defended the coastline for generations. You settle into the city eager to see the sprawling greenery of the fairway ahead.
