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.
