Nice to walk around, with lots of restaurants in the opposite sidewalks. Taxis available if you wish to visit one of the local wineries, something I did, visited Nanni and Las Nubes.

Cafayate is a small town, and this village square is the same. It was quite nice to walk around, check into a few souvenier shop, plenty of restaurants to choose from, and there is also a small-ish souvenier market which had lots of choice.

Nice plaza with Catholic Church, many restaurants, some (touristy) shops. Ideal for a stroll, sitting down and watching life in all its forms pass by. Relaxing!

Large by small town Argentina standards, the square has your usual local artisan shops, restaurants. Don't miss the ice cream shop where you can try local Malbec wine flavor.

There are plenty of shops selling wines and sweets and souvenirs across the streets around the plaza. The best quality souvenirs, however are along Guemes Street at the Northeast corner.
