    up the hill

    right at the historic centre a horse carriage taxi spot. very tipical and gorgeous scene. they are there to take tourists up the hill, about 4/5 miles to the pena parque and passing the moorish castle. sure is a charming way to go up, but, i must warn you: not the cheapest way. in fact, 100 euros for a 20 minutes ride, sure is expensive. if you care for those kind of attractions, well, is an experience to take. if you can't afford it and if you have no car, just take the bus.

    In stead of walking up the hill you can use one of the horse drawn carriages.

    Also for hire for a sightseeing tour.

    In the center of town, just outside the Royal Palace you will find several horse drawn carriages (or buggys). When you have time, this would be a fun way to tour the area.

    Since parking is very difficult in the old town, I suggest that you rent one of this coaches and enjoy the trip.
