Placeta de Sant Esteve, Andorra la Vella, Andora, 2009[open in full screen]  

 
 

This placa has four names? On the official plan of the city it is called Placeta de Sant Esteve,quite logical being just behind 12th century Sant Esteve church. On the plaça itself there are three other names displayed, Raco de Mestre Josep Fontbernat, Cal Peret de la Lluisa [both visible on a panorama above] and Plassa del Princep Benlloch on the other side of the back entrance to the church.

  Whatever the name is this very small space is always in the lovely shade and really quiet and pleasant. Strangely enough plaçeta also accommodates in very close proximity to the church small restaurant with clearly revolutionary star symbol and the name "Raco Cuba" [red Cuba!?]. But don't be fooled, small street is not closed for traffic, scooter, bicycles and pedestrian are aloud [no cars].   It is one of the main arteries of the old city of Andorra, connecting this area with the 15th century, still functioning, house of parliament.

On the small photos bellow are two other ambients - placetas from around the corner.
