Whilst waiting for the ferry in the pouring rain visited Chocolateria Aliva. Certainly glad we did, churros were crisp and hot, chocolate was chocolaty, staff were friendly and prices were reasonable. Well worth the walk.

this is one of the most typical places to have a Spanish sweet called CHURROS and hot chocolate. All made on the premises and with an air of the 60s decade that can transport you way back then.
