The Jewish quarter of Malaga is the oldest part of the Malaga historic center where the Jewish community lived during the Middle Ages.

The Jewish square was opened in 2013. It connects the Alcazaba and the Roman theater with the Picasso Museum and the Plaza de la Merced.

It is not the prettiest square in Malaga.

my family and i spent one week in the Capital of Costa del So, Malaga, renting a wondeful appartement that overlooked the Mediterranean-Sea. The Juderia neighborhood was so peaceful, beautiful and the people were so very friendly. There are many Americans who holiday in the area, while we enjoyed using our little Spanish it was interesting to speak our home tongue too. We took day trips to Gibraltar, Tangie(Morocco), and Ronda(famous for it's bullfighting arena). We also did another day trip to Al Hambra, the last moorish castle in Granada. This area is falling in history!

The plaza self is small, but was important in the history. There is "Ben Gabirol " visitor centre, a round small fountain and the eye-catcher is the mural. It's beautiful mural and I love it.

Not really much to this attraction and it’s very small. Nice to see if you are passing. However not worth going out of your way to seek it out.

A public square in the heart of touristy Malaga.Most of the attractions of the city around this area, as are a great many bars and restaurants. The plaza itself is okay, but the restaurants here are decent (at tourist prices). If visiting Malaga, you'll likely pass the plaza at some point and it's worth visiting for it's historical value, if not the food.

We stumbled upon Plaza De La Juderia as we were wandering around the wonderful historic centre of Malaga.
In medieval times this was the centre of the Jewish Quarter and as such it's an important plaza in the rich history of Malaga.
The plaza itself is only small ,really nice architecture but the most fascinating features of the plaza is the stunning mural and the cute little water feature,it's plaza's like these that make wandering around the old town such a pleasure,it's location is also superb ,in the midst of the busy and bustling historic centre and near to some of the most famous sites in Malaga such as the Roman Theatre and Alcazaba and some of the beautiful churches this city has to offer .
Plaza De La Juderia is most definitely well worth seeking out.

Plaza de la Juderia or the Jewish square marks the area where the old Jewish Quarter was situated in the medieval era. Contains a nice pool sculpture and is situated near the Ben Gabriol sculpture and the Roman amphitheater.

This tiny square part of the jewish quarter is easily missed however, worth a look during a walk it is also home to Centro de Recepción de Visitantes Ben Gabirol

There's absolutely nothing to do or see. Minuscule square, literally with one tree and one bench in the middle of the commercial center. Prioritize other spots specially if your time is short.

Malaga, like most Spanish cities, has lots of pretty squares, some are large and colourful like Merced, busy and fashionable like Constitucion and some are quieter and hidden away like this little gem located not far from the birthplace of Pablo Picasso the most famous citizen of this, the most southern city on the European mainland. The area is at the heart of the inner city and has a distinctly medieval feel about it and is a great place to stroll around particularly as it feels a million miles away from the nearby Eurotan resorts of the Costa del Sol where the olde Spain collides with new , and the results could not be more fascinating and at times baffling. The interesting Ben Gabirol tourist office is well worth a visit bearing in mind that it is dedicated to the philosophical legacy of the Sephardic community of Malaga. Solomon ibn Gabirol, the man himself, was an 11th century Andalusian poet and renowned Jewish philosopher. Visiting this truly historic area was certainly a highlight of a recent visit to Malaga and it is highly recommended at any time of the year. There are many good restaurants, the iconic El Pimpi and cafes, the wonderful Cafe Central, in the vicinity.
