This is another little gem of a place that we have stumbled upon during our travels. The villagers are very friendly and welcoming. Unfortunately we were there on Monday and the plaza was deserted except for one solitary man. It is, however, a delightful plaza...More

The place is nice in the daytime, but best after 10 pm, when all bars and restaurants are open and packed with people, mostly locals, form young to old. You can enjoy a real Spanish experience, without the touristic touch.

We dropped into Archidona while staying nearby at Cortijo, La Haza. It was a bit of a dull day but the unusual plaza was well worth a look

Authentic square in the heart of Archidona, steeped in history. Beautiful buildings and a choice of three restaurants for a meal surrounded by memories of the olden days.

Interesting 'square' with a selection of cafes and restaurants. Nice place to hang out. It is unusual to find an eight sided 'square' and the buildings are attractive and in the past were used for a very different purpose than eateries.

Beautiful plaza well worth a visit. It has been restored and looks very splendid with bars and restaurants occupying the square. There is a uniformity about the paintwork which helps create the simple clean look to the plaza. Worth a visit if you are staying...More
