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.
