This is a great square to walk around early in the morning before any tourists appear. The views of the Mountains and the valley are tremendous.

This not-quite-square-square was a pleasant surprise after walking up the steps and steep slope from the new town. It is very well restored with lots of cafes and restaurants, and the castle is just 50m away.

So beautiful, full of old charm and character, very relaxing afternoon. Bars and restaurants good value.

We sat and whiled away a few hours here watching the swallows swooping around, people watching while drinking beer and eating ice cream. Wonderful place :). Just make sure you’re sitting under a parasol as the swallows have a habit of pooping on people 😂😂

If you are visiting or just passing through Ainsa, make sure that you visit the old town square. It is simply stunning and surrounded by bars that are in keeping with the location.

What a great place to visit in a sunny day. The views around the walls onto the valleys and mountains are espectacular.

I would say this is a really gorgeous place to stop and spend an afternoon. If history is your thing, this is really a nice place to see a really well preserved historic site. I wouldn't say there is really much reason to plan anymore...More

The whole square is surrounded by restaurants, small shops, cafes etc. Mainly pedestrianised although some traffic allowed with a permit - short stay only. Beautifully preserved building. Watch out for the cobble stones.

Thank Henryka
