Streets and Squares of Caravaca de la Cruz. City Hall Square Photo tour through the streets and squares of Caravaca de la Cruz's old headquarters.
 
City Hall Square (plaza del ayuntamiento)
Built in the 18th century, around the same time as the El Salvador Church. The town's traffic flows under the city hall's arch. The square is very nice, with decorated facades and a bar area where you can enjoy a tasty tapa under the sun. There is also a statue called “el cristiano y el moro” (the Christian and the Moor) in which the defeated Muslim seems to proudly say "I'll be back". Behind the statue and in a straight line sits the Church Tower of El Salvador.
 
Olivericas Street (calle olivericas)
The steep access to the castle starts in this street, where one of shutter boards for the wall surrounding Caravaca in the middle ages, was located.
 
Puentecilla Street (calle puentecilla)
This street, main access to the town of Caravaca for centuries, runs parallel to the city's wall and is connected to the Arco Square. A fountain and drinking-trough at the beginning of the street was used by travelers and horses to quench their thirst. In the 1920s, after the main avenue of the city was broadened (Gran Vía), Puentecilla lost its relevance as one of the main town streets.
