“Great place for market shopping and mooching”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2012

We visited the plaza several times - the covered market is housed there. We also attended some flamenco and cultural events. Its an epic space and made more interesting because its slightly run down and not just tourist shops. There's a slightly bizarre range of shops and stalls. Baskets, great straw bags, antiques, bric a brac and plants. On the corner there's a lovely artisan deli selling jabago hams, gorgeous morcilla, beans and a great range of cordoban specialities. As we were self catering we loved the fruit and veg stalls (cheap and wonderful quality produce). You can do proper food shopping here - there's a handful of excellent fish stalls (visit Tuesday onwards) and a good selection of butchers and charcuterie sellers. Cafe bars and restaurants put out tables in the huge central square. It made a welcome change from the hectic crowds of tourists round the historic quarter. Terrific space for events - we attended free flamenco and music sessions with the local cafes providing the bar.

“big square with lots of bars”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2012

Is beautiful place but only average. There are balconies with flowers, is a square like lots in other places around Castilla la mancha, for exemple. Is not common in Andalucia. My advice is if you pass near, visit it, but not change your planes to go.

“Interesting from a historical point of view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2012

This plaza is central to Cordoba's history for many reasons. Today though, it is slightly ramshackle with a hippy feel around the place. No bad thing of course but it leaves you wandering what it was like when a better state of repair. The tapas bars on the upper side of the square are nothing amazing.

“You must visit this place for lunch.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2012

This wonderful plaza is quite an incredible and unexpected sight, so very big, so utterly charismatic. Even in the coldest day, you can sit outside, basking in the sun, having lunch in one of the many little restaurants in the plaza. Best viewed during the day.
