The center of the city, especially the two main squares, Virgen Blanca and Plaza de España, are covered with terraces in hot weather. Locals and visitors gather there day and night.

DUBLIN TERRACE. A very central terrace, just in the Virgen Blanca square, a meeting point for young people. A perfect place to get one’s strength back after a tour around the old town, or before stepping into it. Once you have a sit there, you may stay for a while, because the place is very popular and the view of the surrounding white galleries and the square itself deserve a relaxed glance.

And if you run away from tourists, very close to the Virgen Blanca square, in the Herrería Street you will find the BODEGÓN GORBEA TERRACE, best known as “The Bode”. At first sight there’s nothing special about it but have a sit and you’ll reckon a cool atmosphere, something different from the center. You can call it “alternative” if you want, but if you aim to meet people this the place to go. The bar is country decorated, with old oak beams, wood…

Very close to the two squares, in the Correría street we can find two places with terraces, small but cosy, with a great atmosphere. First one (from the Virgen Blanca square) is the LA MALQUERIDA bar, and the other, with younger regulars, the IGUANA CAFE (#151).

A very trendy and warm in cold weather (heated in winter) terrace is the JARDÍN DE FALERINA, just by the Montehermoso Cultural Center up the hill of the Old Town. They often have djs playing music and serve dishes like the delicious aple and raisin croquettes. There are live concerts in the garden in summer.

And when weather is really hot, we always have the convenient Florida parc, with Zabaltagui Florida terrace, very trendy and, above all, cool.
