“Nice to explore”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

Loved exploring the small streets, interesting shops and good eateries. The Plaza de Naranjos was a very nice place to people watch, eat and drink capucinnos.

“Spend 2 hours”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

Quaint little section for walking around and looking at shops. There are some Tapas restaurants around the area that are rated by TripAdvisor. Try one.

“Beautiful little Spanish market area”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

We actually went here twice during our stay. The first time was disappointing. It was cold and rainy. We also got here too early in the day. We didn't realize nobody does anything before noon. We happened to go back the night before we left to get some souveniers. It was a completely different story. The weather was sunny even though still not real warm. But the shops were all open and the market had a real charm. We spent a couple hours walking through the area and had a really nice time.

Be sure to not go in the morning and remember in the off season bad weather is a reason not to open your shop!

“Quaint and Picturesque”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

Wandering the narrow quaint streets of the old town was very relaxing. We stopped in orange(naranja) square for coffee and pastries and watched the world go by. Would definitely return
