This is a lovely place to sit and ponder. When it is busy you can watch life unfolding the the local community interacting. Unlike the UK where anyone, let alone a man, is chased away from a kids playground it is the men of the family who bring the children here and keep a loose eye on them. Communication is encouraged and older men (& women) engage and enjoy watching the children. There are cafes if you want to eat or drink or there are seats and walls where you can sit and observe. There is a popular ice cream shop and at carnival the newspaper sellers also sell face masks and other carnival apparel. As carnival hots up various other stalls arrive selling sweets, churros, sausages and pizza. It is a fun place and when quieter the pidgeons come and rest and you can listen to the fountain. You can get taxi's from here and it is just round the corner from the port and tourist office. All streets lead here pretty much. At carnival the murgasas and comprasas (singers and funny men) perfom and extra chairs are put there for the locals. They have no problem with the tourist and will accommodate you, but not always engage. Lovely place. Around the area wheelchair access is not a problem as most areas, although very steep in places, have steps as well as push or wheelchair access. Having said that there are areas where you simply cannot get across roads, or the pavement is just too narrow and high, because don't forget it is still mostly an old fashioned little village.
