“Wonderful Place to Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

The Plaza de los Naranjos is the center of the old town and it is a wonderful place to visit. There are many good restaurants and there are many very good stores nearby. The place is very clean and very charming. There are some very good shoe stores near it.

It is not just Plaza des Naranjas that is worth visiting, there are many charming squares, narrow streets, old houses decorated with plants, attractive boutiques

“lovely area to wander about.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Its a sophisticated little town centre with pretty shops and quite expensive (in this area) cafes. You can also walk around the churches and city wall. Its quite small and pedestrianised with cobbled streets, so lots of photo opportunities. However shops can close at 1 to 5.. and spanish lunchtime is around 3 pm, and it can get busy. Worth a visit. Parking difficult on the street as its such a busy area. Use the underground park near Hotel Fuente.

“Orange square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Loved orangesquare, the narrow streets and sea front. Some good shops too! Lots of good places to eat and drink and much more atmospheric and child friendly than banus

“Great walk with lots of tourist shops and restaurants.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Great if you want to see a little more authentic old Spain, but not as great as some other old Spain we like.
