Plaza del Barco (Boat Square)
Plaza del Barco
The Plaza del Barco is located at the point of the town known as "La Cova Gran". In this enclave at the beginning of twentieth centrure a ship ran aground whilst seeking refuge from a strong easterly storm. The people of the town went overboard to help the castaways and, in turn, took ship materials to build houses. From this event came this popular saying: "The boat was from Greece, the current Lifted it and it came to rest in the Cova Gran".
