This square is one of the nicer areas in Gibraltar. There are a number of places to eat and shop. I must have looked like a tourist because people kept asking if I wanted a guide to the top. Pretty nice place.

Even with a fair amount of tourists flocking to this scenic area I was able to meander and enjoy the clean, well maintained shops, pubs and other delights offered! Definitely a must-see!

A great place to visit and unmissable as this is usually the first place you see as you enter the town. Quite a few shops and restaurants where you can sit and people watch with a coffee or traditional English fish & chips.
