Plaza Espana is an authentic Spanish square in the heart of Arroyo de la Miel, containing some lovely bars and restaurants, including the supposedly haunted Fountain Bar. On the edge of the square are the ruins of the original paper mill dating back to the 18th century, which together with iron ore mining and fishing, was the areas main industries. Also known as Fountain Square by the Brits, although the fountain was removed a few years ago to be replaced by a tap!!! A new fountain and wall mural with water feature have been erected and are now working. Bars and restaurants in the square include:- Cafe Bar Plaza Espana, Victoria Pizzeria, Bar Torreon, Absenthia and the Fountain Bar.
Plaza Tribuna
Opened in April 2009, this new square has been constructed next to the ruins of the 18th century paper mill and just a few steps from Plaza Espana. The square contains a fountain as well as a statue of Felix Solesio, who was the founder of Arroyo de la Miel and also the owner of the six paper mills that were erected on the site of a farm.
