Owner description: This 18th-century square is one of the largest in Spain.

This is a stunning plaza the more so at night. It knocks the Madrid Plaza into a cocked hat. Watching the locals promenade in the early eve is also fun. Spent 3 days here and fell in love with it. Avoid the restaurants in the plaza overpriced and poor cuisine: far better to be had just outside

Lots if shops, restaurants, cafes. School was out ans it was raining so the plaza was not too busy. I was hoping to find and listen to musicians but none to be found. It a bit disappointing. We did enjoy walking thru the streets and stopping at the local shops and bars.

This place is a hive of activity day and night. The music in the Plaza at night is a must visit after dining. The beautiful Baroque architecture makes it worth it even if the lace was empty.

Wonderful square... Lots of bars, tapas and places to watch the world go by. Tapas just off the square more reasonable!
