There are a number of bars, cafes, Lanjaronhotels, and hostels in the town, and plenty of good shops, as well as a Tourist Information Office who are extremely helpful and speak very good English.  The main streets in Lanjaron are very pretty and are tree-lined, and there are also a few Lanjaron Watervery old-looking streets with some tunnelled walkways with beams.  Barrio Hondillo is a good example of this.
