Interesting square. Nice coffee bars and a few tapas bars. Very Spanish. Big market on the way to the market Friday morning.

It is just a regular plaza - typical for Andalucia... but it is the only thing we found worth seeing in this town - hence the review...

A lovely, typical Spanish plaza complete with fountain and two interesting churches. Two pedestrian shopping streets lead off of it with some nice shops and cafes.

A very nice square with a main shopping street right of it. Mango, Zara, Stradivarius and etc. Square has a really cute fountain in the middle of it with colourful mosaic benches!

If you are stuck in Algeciras on a sunny day, waiting for a boat, bus or train, the Plaza Alta is a very pleasant place to wile away an hour or so. It is very family friendly and there should be plenty of locals also taking in the sun and a coffee, an ice cream or just having a sit and a chat. There are food vendors on site, as well as good cafes and tapas bars in the surrounding streets.

A word of warning: watch the pigeons. They are here in force and as aggressive crumb scroungers as any I have seen.
