Good place to take a break and people watch. Also a good place for photographs. Some shops and places to eat are readily accessible.

Walking the pedestrianized streets of old Malaga is an intriguing activity. A highlight of the walk has to be the Plaza del Obispo de Malaga and the surrounding streets. Impressive architecture, colorful buildings, a bustle of activity, shops, and restaurants make it a wonderful stop....More

Daily we sat in one restaurant or another just eating, drinking, food, coffee, pastry. You name it. There was something for everyone. Relaxing. We saw many beautiful sunsets sitting in the plaza at the number of cafes or restaurants surrounding the plaza.

Serious religious art - fair enough given the context - helpfully relieved by a lovely mini paradise garden

Malaga center has many plazas like this, but this one had beautiful buildings surrounding it making it one of the prettiest to sit in a café and sip a drink or have a bite.

After walking through all the shops we came upon the square. It is beautiful. We sat with an ice cream and just watched the world go by. There were lots of people passing by but it still seemed peaceful. I loved it

an excellent building which I viewed from the outside - the square - the setting is really pretty - old town - sit in the restaurants in the square with a sangria to appreciate its splendour
