Plaza Cavana is a lovely square in the centre of town just behind the iglesia El Salvador and is a great place just to sit out on the café terraces and relax.
The plaza was totally renovated at the end of 2009/beginning of 2010.
There are several bars and restaurants in the square – Italica, La Fragata, Bar Cavana, Candela, Cafeteria Hotel Plaza Cavana, MarBella – most with terraces from around April to November.
Bar Cavana, one of the oldest bars in Nerja, and Candela both do very nice tapas.
There are also a couple of banks (La Caixa, Banco Popular), ATM’s and one hotel, the three star Hotel Plaza Cavana.
