For those who love either architecture or culture, or indeed both, the Grand Theatre is well worth a look.

Many operatic performances such as the Barber of Seville and Dido & Aeneas are shown here, along with a selection of dance, orchestra, plays and amateur acts.
Restaurant la Cape is much more than a restaurant; it’s a gastronomic experience. Dinner choices include stuffed lobster and roasted turnips for starters, cod and sweetbreads for main course, and rhubarb confit and roasted cookies for dessert. For those who can’t decide, the tasting menu, as designed by chef Thomas Brasleret, is an excellent choice.
