If there's one plaza I know I'm going to visit on any holiday to Fuengirola I take it's Plaza De La Constitucion .
The plaza was opened and named in 1841 by the first mayor of Fuengirola namely Antonio Garci'a Cotes after Fuengirola was accepted by Malaga as separate from Mijas.
There's some really good bars and cafés in the plaza which makes it a very popular destination ,there are two standout features of this plaza namely the beautiful Nuestra Señora Del Rosario ,a stunning looking church and the fantastic Monumento A La Familia ,a great statue that's most definitely a landmark of this area of this sun drenched resort ,my twin and I visited this plaza several times on our weeks holiday here ,we enjoyed iced cold beers sat out in the plaza ,had a great time ,if you're planning a holiday to Fuengirola it's a plaza to most definitely check out.

The plaza is typical of such plazas in Spain . Not the biggest or the grandest but it has a certain charm . The RC church is the focal point and it is a 19th century church , ornate inside. There are plenty of benches to sit and people watch . Some nice bars , cafes and if you venture over behind the Post Office there are many more quaint bars and cafes . Fuengriola is not all ‘touristy ‘ the seafront and a few streets in cater for tourists the rest of Fuengriola is a ‘working ‘ ‘residential’ town .

Fuengirola is one of the jewels of the Costa Del Sol. There are some lovely restaurants off the Plaza Constitution, fantastic little independent shops and a lovely place to catch the sun. It is particularly lovely here in the winter months.

This charming square with the Church of the Rosary is located off of a busy shopping district in Fuengirola. It's a couple of blocks away from the marina and carousel. Walkers will pass the Plaza Constitucion en route to the mosque where to explore the Sunday market . Rain or shine, you can always find a cafe, bakery or restaurant to relax and people watch. The local shops in this area have many unique and one of a kind items to enjoy now or take home for a great memory.

I don't really understand the rave reviews for this site, maybe its a reflection on Fuengirola ? we have been too many much better 'Plazzas' on our tour of Spain. Maybe its timing, on a cold, cloudy Tuesday lunchtime its really nothing special. I can see that with a major event happening it might be worth seeking out.

Had been to fuengirola three times before we came upon this beautiful vibrant square, if you like to both browse and shop then this is the place for you. Fantastic little boutiques, don't be frightened to go inside and browse you will definitely find something to fit your budget and style and come away feeling like you have got a bargain, oh and did I mention feeling like a million dollars!!

This plaza is essentially the focus of Fuengirola, with the most dominant feature being the church. Facing it from one corner is an enormous algarroba tree that under which, quite a few years back, one might assume that the inhabitants of Fuengirola used to play pelota. Now, no longer possible as the plaza is paved. I’m glad to say that the tree is still there, even though it was scheduled for felling at the time that the underground 24hr car park was being constructed, but due to an enormous outcry the algarroba only had to endure some prudent pruning.

Along the opposing sides of the plaza are plenty of benches shaded by flowering shrubbery trained to climb the decorative frameworks. This is the place the people of Fuengirola like to meet with friends and chat, have a drink, or just enjoy the shade. Altogether colourful, tranquil and appealing. In the middle of the plaza is a sizeable sculpture with more flowers encircling it, but there is still space for concerts to be held, as and when they occur.

The Ayuntamiento decorates the plaza with lights come Christmas and the residents, armed with their glasses of champagne and twelve grapes, fill the plaza at midnight to celebrate the New Year in the traditional manner. Surrounding the Plaza de la Constitucion are a wide variety of shops and cafés, bars, and banks.

Thanks for reading this and if you've found it helpful I'd appreciate a ‘thumbs up’ below.

We have just returned from staying in Fuengirola and visited the square most nights. The atmosphere is magical at this time of year. Lots of small huts selling Christmas decorations, gifts & food. Lovely just to sit & watch the world go by,

As the main shopping streets are all around the plaza, you can choose between several terraces to sit down and relax after the shopping tour. There is also aparking lot under ground but not very cheap I am afraid. The church is pretty and sometimes you can observe a wedding or baptisme going on. Around Xmas you have great decoration there and a Xmas market
