PLaza is crowded with both tourists and local people. Mostly filled with bars and restaurants, among which a lot of Italian restaurants. Also a great tasca bar here!

Plaza Charco is a large square with cafe's, gelateria's, a few shops and a playground for children. It's at the bottom of the pedestrianized area of shops. It's ok nothing that special.

There's nothing interesting about this place. I don't know, how one can sit there for more than 5 minutes.

this was very welcomed for my little one after we had been walking around the shops in the morning. I sat and had an ice cream whilst she played. Very nice little area, well kept and very clean.
