Lovely square for sitting around on the benches and watching the world go by. There are artists plying their trade and also a dance class of Latin movements; i. e. Rumba whilst I was there.

This little square is always humming during the day and into the evening. Nice cafes border one side with a bunch of ships lining another. Great place to relax and people watch, if you can get a seat!

The gardens are very small and are surrounded by many restaurants and the area is very busy.

In the center there are benches, trees and water fountains to relax by. Around the edges is... More

The garden or most likely a square is shaped after a slice of cheese or cake. It has lovely trees, benches and little shops and bars. You can sit outside, drink your favourite poison and... More

At night there are groups of wandering city minstrels... who take you on a singing tour of the centre of the city. You need to understand Spanish to understand the stories and the songs, but if you don't it should be fine, my husband doesnt speak Spanish but he was able to easily interpret the songs as the troup also...
