Jerez de la Frontera Cruz Vieja Square
Cruz Vieja Square
If calle San Miguel is the natural entrante to the quarter, then the Plaza Cruz Vieja is its portico, and presiding over the square stands a statue by Victor Ochoa of that immortal daughter of the barrio: Lola Flores, striking a characteristic pose. In the background stands the recently restored Palacio de Villapanés and a hundred-year old olive tree, and one side of the square stands one of the oldest tapas bars in Jerez: Bar Maypa.
Two streets lead off the Plaza Cruz Vieja: calle Empedrada and calle Cerro Fuerte. We shall take the latter in order to enter deeper into the heart of La Plazuela.
