Plaza Maria Zambrano is located behind the bus station on the N-340/avenida Pescia and can be accessed from both this road and from calle Antonio Jimenez.
It is actually quite a large area and L-shaped with plenty of seating, decorative plants and affords views over the riverbed and the western end of town.
There have been several bars/restaurants on the corner of the square on the calle Jimenez side but these have not survived. The nearest watering hole is the bar and cafeteria La Parada just round the corner and directly behind the bus station. Plenty of other places within a few minutes walk.
There are orange trees throughout the square to give it a nice bit of colour.
The square is named after philosopher and essayist María Zambrano Alarcón who was born in Vélez-Málaga on April 22nd 1904 and died in Madrid on February 6th 1991.
The patterned tiles in the square are interspersed with small decorative ceramic tiles.
The lighting is also very decorative.
