Nice little lazy square in the centre of the city. Provides some nice shade during the day and pretty much all of the cafes are good quality too. Very close to the market too. Worth a passing visit if you’re on your way through.

Yes - try Restaurante Vegetariano Cañadú, Plaza de la Merced, 21 Málaga - (+34) 952 60 27 19. Very good reviews. It's on the opposite side of the Plaza to Picasso's house. Enjoy.
