This is the main square of this small Spanish Town. It is very close to container port and thus makes it accesible for seafarers to visit this town during breaks.

After walking around, this plaza was great to grab a wine and rest a bit. Many people were either walking around or kids playing. There's a few places to sit down and relax. Even a Carrefour to grab any snacks or toiletries nearby.
