At the top is a very pretty white and blue tiled gazebo with seating which is a lovely backdrop for a photo ... and at the front is the "Love Padlock"monument. This tiled gazebo area was used as a "restaurant" in the last episode of the ITV comedy series "Benidorm" in a scene with Tim Healy.
If you take the street to the left (Calle Dr Perz Llorca) you will stumble across a hidden little gem .... a watch repair shop ! They have all disappeared in the UK - there was a time when every local High Street had one.
When I first moved here a friend took me there when I mentioned that I needed a new battery and didn't know where to go. Mike the owner has been there for years and a truly warm and friendly Northerner who will advise you without hesitation.
I took in a very expensive Gucci watch. I had been quoted £45 in London for a battery!!! The reason given was it needed to be sent away etc etc so I went away at that price! I took it into Mike and he said go and have a coffee and come back in 10 minutes. I wondered around and returned a short while later and he handed me the watch back - and I waited with trepidation for the charge. 3€ please !!!! I could have fallen over.
The majority of batteries cost 3€ .... occasionally they may be 5€ but that is the max. So if you are visiting Benidorm and you need any batteries, new straps - there are 100's, or watch repairs I would recommend taking them in - you'll be delighted with the service. Its like a little Aladins cave.... more unusual discoveries in Benidorm to follow.
