This is the main square of this small Spanish Town. It is very close to container port and thus makes it accesible for seafarers to visit this town during breaks.

Nice little church, nice market square with a lot of tiled ornaments like benches in beautifull colors, a nice fountain in the middle with green frogs around it sprouting water but it all needs some freshening up. It looks like they started some works, but...More

After walking around, this plaza was great to grab a wine and rest a bit. Many people were either walking around or kids playing. There's a few places to sit down and relax. Even a Carrefour to grab any snacks or toiletries nearby.

It is a cute plaza with colorful ornaments. It is not a must see, but if there, take the chance to walk around and enjoy the small streets around.

The 'local' claim is that the tiling in the plaza is the best outside of the Plaza de Espana in Sevilla (which is fantastic). Not sure it rates that highly but it is nice and in the sunshine very welcoming. The plaza is quite small
