Nice square in the middle of town

A nice Plaza to sit and have Tapas and a drink. Old Church and some pleasant local shopping streets nearby. Stroll around the immediate area to see the old Algeciras. Worth a visit if in the area otherwise not worth stopping.

The square looks lovely in sunshine, with its ceramic tiled decor and seats. It is an imposing sight as you approach. However there is an air of poverty as you watch people go about their daily business.

This could be beautiful but is now a little unloved. Needs a clean and plant watering. Locals and sightseers use it for respite from sun and shopping.

Lovely plaza surrounded by Tapas bars and churches. The centre of Algeciras with amazing coloured tiles. Worth seeing if you are here.

A complete surprise, I really wasn't expecting this. I went there during the middle of the afternoon. The peace and tranquility completely stunned me. Recommended.

Good ice cream shop and tapas bars for an enjoyable evening. Square has changed little in forty years.

I was stuck between bus journeys so I sat in the square all night, It was very peaceful. The cleaners did an efficient job of washing the square, and stopped for a chat. They were very friendly and nobody bothered me. At five o'clock, I walked down to the market and had a coffee and some breakfast in the cafe... More

What an amazing square to visit during sunset time.... all shops are open and u can enjoy also this authentic church where local people go to pray or switch on a candle. i enjoyed sit down and smell the orange blosson from the orange trees, This is the most nice part of Algeciras.
