Plaza Cavana is a popular and, for much of the year, a quite vibrant square in the centre of Nerja, and is located behind the main church, the iglesia El Salvador on the Balcón de Europa.
The square was totally renovated in 2010/2011 and, on this occasion, the changes were not so dramatic as to affect the character and atmosphere.
The square is reached via calle El Barrio (pedestrianised), calle Diputación, calle Granada and from the Balcón de Europa. There are 6 cafes/bars: La Fragata, Candela, Italica, Cafeteria Hotel Cavana, MarBella and Bar Cavana, one of the oldest bars in town. All have terraces in various parts of the square, certainly from April to November.
La Fragata shows La Liga and Champions League matches on a big TV screen so you can sit in the square with a cold beer and support your favourite team.
There are three banks and several ATM’s either in or just off the square.
