  • A place full of life, Earth, good weather and people, a perfect place to stop to pass the time with a cool beer and good company

  • The best completely arcaded square of Spain, a work of art. Visiting it is almost an obligation, and the life of the city shows that it runs around it. That's great.

  • For me, the most beautiful square that there is. And great atmosphere in the square and surrounding area. A walk along its arcades is a delight.
