The heart of Algeciras

A more characterful & attractive part of Algeciras. The main square with 2 churches several bars/restaurants & the heart of the old town.

lots of lively bars and good shopping. Tiled public benches are a work of art. I visited just before Christmas when restaurants and bars were really lively, lots of singing and dancing....at lunch time.

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.
