The Handkerchief Alley got its name by being the width of a handkerchief. It is located in the historic centre of Cordoba, close to the Mosque. At the end of the street we found a small square with a fountain and an orange; some say it is the world's smallest square. Once we had got to the end of the alley we had to retrace our steps, because it is a dead end.
The areas of Calle libereros and La Latina are widely known in Salamanca. They are located near the University building (with its famous facade and frog). The two intersect crosswise and it is there on its axis, where the most life is and why they are so well known.
Calle Libereros takes you from the Pontifica University to the Santa María de los Ángeles library (better known as "Libreros"). The street is almost 100% straight, and along its course we bump into the old University building, the Miguel de Unamuno house-museum and many bars and souvenir shops.
Calle La Latina is much smaller, and cuts perpendicular to that of Libereros, really close to the library "Libereros". In this street there are many private homes and bars, in fact that’s all there is.
The reason that they are so well known and popular today is that there are two large libraries located on these streets: The already mentioned "libreros" and the Abraham Zacut Library (which is on another street parallel to libereros, but just 100 meters away). It is a somewhat deserted area at the start of the school year and just after exams, but during the two months before exams (especially June, with the good weather ...) is when life returns. The libraries are filled leaving not one empty seat, and the bars around are salvation during study hours. At any time day or night you will find people going from the library to the bars, the libraries open 24hours a day and many bars conform to these schedules since they are guaranteed a good income. 1.5 euros for a small beer+ tapas, perfect for snacking.
If one day you study in these libraries you will live it for yourself, although I recommend that during exam weeks you only go by day, because at night sometimes even the library becomes a bar!
A nice chill and intimate place to have a few drinks, located on the beach of Vera Playazo. They have a great variety of cocktails, although at first glance they may seem expensive. The drinks cost the same as everywhere else, but here you enjoy the great sea views.
Right at the top of the town, around the square where the Saturday market is held and behind Santa Maria church, is an area of bars and pubs. Although at the time I took the photos it was not very lively (it was noon), it is true that at night it gets very cool, with tapas over here and beers and mojitos over there, accompanied by a salad of "gyris" with tacos "Andalusian" and "spanish people" "pá mojá". We had a super, fun night here with one another. A Cool Zone with open and cute nooks for everyone. Don't hesitate to spend a little time here if you stop by Mójacar.
We are right in the docklands areas, which in recent years has been enjoying renovation and regeneration. This area is the best way to spend summer nights if you are in the Valencian capital.
Doña Eugenia Vines was the niece of Eugenio Vines, a well-known businessman from Cabañal. They say that one day Doña Eugenia asked God to enlighten her as she had some property in her estate of which she did not know who to leave to. While she was praying, two sisters of the Congregation of the Sacred Heart Hospital of Jesus, female branch of the Order of St John of God came to her. One of these sisters insinuated that she could assist in the founding of an asylum. As confirmed by one of her granddaughters, Doña Eugenia saw this request as a sign of divine providence. The opening of this Asylum was to be a major event in Valencia. Beforehand, it was announced in the press, praising the figure of Doña Eugenia as a lady of inexhaustible charity. The inauguration takes place on the day of Carmen, July 15, 1919. This is the story of the woman who gives name to this long road parallel to the shore.
The seaside resort of Las Arenas fell short in early twentieth century. Demand exceeded a scant and rather poor supply. Thus many anglers became innkeepers. They began to build huts for baths and picnic areas. These would be the restaurants that gave rise to what today are the restaurants of the Paseo Neptuno, integrated into the whole promenade. Many restaurants, pubs, catering establishments in short, mark out this street where the sea breeze is guaranteed.
In Aviles is Alfonso VII Street, popularly known as "the alley of the horns" and little by little it is populated by all kinds of catering establishments, which is beginning to become one of the most visited roads throughout the village. Here you will find places for tapas or coffee. Take a walk among artisan shops and ballet schools, all very relaxed and slightly bohemian. You will also find the Exhibition Hall of the financial institution CajAstur. In this street there is one of the few, if not the only, club in the city, called the Nome.
In the marina promenade in the beautiful surroundings of the park and gardens of Miguel Hernandez is this great recreational and leisure area. Here you can enjoy a few hours having drinks at sunset or relax watching a movie in an interesting theater that can be found in this kind of mall, without having to buy things in stores, because there aren't any - only pubs, coffee shops, sandwich bars, cinemas and even a Mcdonalds. In the photos there are several shops, etc.
