“Very pretty village square”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

Lovely little village square with restaurants, shops, and church with clock tower. Very interesting people watching experience with older men playing cards, young men on horses, and cars coming from seemingly impossible narrow side streets.

“best friday evening”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

We spent a week in Competa and really enjoyed eating at this square. Both restaurants in the square were very good and affordable. On friday night there was music and the lovely gal started with an elvis song "all shook up." Our last night there was magical. Good food , good music and lots of locals passing through on horse or foot. The ceramic art tells the history of the village. The town itself was one of the more beautiful blanco pueblos in Andalucia. There are shops in town. highly recommend. The locals were very friendly. A number of British ex pats live in area so most of the locals spoke some English.

“Lovely little town square”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

This little town square is so lovely .There are three restaurants complete with big umbrellas to shade you from the sunshine.Food is available throughout the day and is always a good standard .You must take a look inside the beautiful church and marvel at the mosaic wall.A treasure to behold.You might be lucky to see a wedding here or indeed watch the horsemen come and have a few beers .Just a beautiful plaza and so chilled .A pleasure to sit and watch the world go by here !

In the middle of town... stay at one of the pubs, enjoy the ambiance, people going to church, coming home from shopping. There is free wifi at the pubs.
