"The houses are on the whole quite good, although many of them are rather dilapidated; they are fishermen’s houses in the strict sense and inhabited by this class that makes up the largest part of the population. The streets, despite being steep, are very pretty and fairly clean for an essentially fishing town. The square is of regular shape and the town hall located there is very good and capacious."
