It is an idyllic place to spend a pleasant summer or winter morning for going for a walk, having a beer with tapas and enjoying live music. Which day to go? Well it depends on the time of the year. If you decide to go in the summer, from June, Friday afternoons. Or, if you live all year round on the island, check it out in the winter on Sunday mornings.
