Laguardia is about three blocks long and one block wide, in modern-city terms, so if you're here you'll walk around and if you walk around you'll find yourself in this square. Perfect place to stop for tapas and a glass of wine.

Laguardia is a gem that you should not miss. The small main square is perfect along with musical clock and beautiful buildings. The shock came when we went to a bar in the corner of the square for tapas and a glass of Rioja was...More

Just what you'd expect to see in a small Basque village - complete with animated clock, window boxes overflowing with flowers, outdoor tables. This is no doubt the hub of Laguardia. (The tourist office is located just off the plaza; easy to find, manned by...More

The village of LaGuardia is a gem. Strolling the maze of streets with neighborhood cafes and shops with people living their lives amidst such a beautiful backdrop was a treat.

Nice the three dancing puppets at noon, but it is a bit simplistic and I wouldn't specifically plan to go there if you weren't already in Laguardia around that time

Perhaps because one side of this small square is covered over, it doesn't so much feel like a square as a charming little street. No matter - it is the first delightful place you see when you enter the main gate to this charming, walled...More

Sat outside our hotel and ate dinner in the square. Totally locals and almost not tourists. A real Spanish small village experience. I suggest you go when the clock tower rings. There are dancing figurines at 5, 8. and 10 pm. All the locals were...More

When the musicians are playing, the square comes alive with music, dancing, and happy crowds! But this is a wonderful place to visit anytime - it is full of history and charm! Wonderful to walk through the streets of Laguardia!
