You will find a range of unique local products: the fruit has just been ripened and topped by the sun, the goat cheese is sold there by the producer. Each with their own flavour.
Apt will also seduce you with the charm that radiates small streets of the old town, old fountains, mansions and small shady squares are part of the decor ...
