Among the Famous people who lived nearby is Pablo Ruiz Picasso who always hear the bells since he was born and the center of the square stands the statue of General Torrijos. Malaga’s sons lived nearby like Riego, Cuervo, Ferrándiz, Relosillas and Ortiz. Highly recommended...More

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.
