"The houses of this town are, on the whole, good, especially those on the quay; the streets, although some are very steep, are clean and paved with fine gravel. Many of the houses have coats of arms and fine blocks of stone and still bear strange blazonry and decorations built into their walls that reveal just how magnificent these dwellings were at one time."
