“A memorable afternoon..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2014 NEW

For those who like strolling down cobblestone streets window shopping and dining al fresco..this is the place. A wide and eclectic selection of gifts await your choosing. The storefronts are all beautifully decorated and homes above all boast beautiful flora. I'd walk these streets every weekend if I could. A highlight of our trip and your too..

“In the summer and autumn - a must see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2014 NEW

Great to sit outside in Orange Square in the summer or autumn especially as the sun goes down and the ambience kicks in. Do not expect great quality restaurant meals at any of the establishments there, perfectly edible but with prices you'd expect for the location. You'd be better off finding one of the better local tapas or restaurants further up the hill. Never had one decent seafood meal there which considering it's a seaside town and considering it's a magnet for tourists is a shame.

“Authentic Andalucia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2014

Great place to wander around the narrow streets and historic churches and monuments. Great for dining and shopping in the local artisan's shops. A must is to have the "authentic churros" with a fruit smoothie sitting in the shade watching the locals go about their business.
