It's the place to be when the Spanish are celebrating (we were there at Christmas and New Year), or when you just want to feel the buzz of a lively square surrounded on three sides by shops, bars, restaurants, and a church, while on the fourth side...

I came here during the day and in the evening, both times it was beautiful. I liked the view at the sea, but also of the shore. The closer you get here, the more tourists and tourists shops

A very picturesque area with panoramic sea views and street music. We were there in February 2017. Fortunately the weather was warm and many tourists out

Was there early in year therefore a lot of the bars and cafés were closed. There is still plenty open though and it is a good daytime and evening milling point.

Stunning view, great buzz around. Beautiful church in the centre which is worth a visit. Cafe's around the square, with the small streets around to stroll around.
