Guía square is justo in the center of the city. It is big Andrés full of flowers in summer. Very often it is used yo do diferent atractions, like music concerts, little theatre, market place... It is a very nice place to take a break.

Cute square full of flowers, perfect to have a break. On the left side you can find the tourist information point, its a small kiosk at the beginning of the place.

Absolutely beautiful plaza with some.food vendors, lots of benches to sit and tons of roses. In the center is a gazebo/stage and a statue of cervantes. Beautiful view of old building and the place to be in the evening, all ages are out and about.

So much history here! I highly recommend visiting. We got to experience adventuring here in boiling hot weather and pouring rain, and it was just gorgeous!
