Surrounded by brightly painted houses with flowering balconies and narrow cobbled streets lined with bars and restaurants, the plaza is a popular place for dining out while watching the locals go about their business. During the day, browse the stalls with various goods, from local crafts and jewelry, to paintings and Cuban cigars.

All the usual. Street vendors, restaurants, shops, buskers etc. Colorful area worth walking through and catching a bite. more »
Good place to hang out at night the square is full of small bars that over look the square
This is a nice square and all San Diego neighbourhood seems to be more nicer than the central area, less vendors.
