  • This plaza was a bull ring. Very interesting history. People would sit on the balconies to watch the bullfight.

  • Beautiful place, such a small beautiful village. People are very friendly, is very colorful and lovely place to visit. Super nice and safe.
  • A fantastic place to enjoy a meal with family or friends after spending the morning exploring this wonderful village. The medieval feel of the place won't disappoint. Choose from the variety of restaurants in the plaza, some offering balcony seating with excellent views, but make sure that you book in advance.
