Owner description: The palatial Ayuntamiento (Town Hall) of Valencia dominates the square, and its bells chime out the hours. Surrounding the plaza are other buildings from the city's golden age, such as the Correos (the main post office). In the center of the plaza, a fountain is surrounded by flower stalls with all the colors, sizes, varieties imagineable. This is a good starting point from which to visit Valencia's old quarter or today's most fashionable shops.

“Place for tourists”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

Good selection of restaurants nearby. Well decorated during festivals and during christmas. Nice place to sit after long walks or after a day of shopping. It is difficult to get to during midday at Fallas.

“Multi functional plaza”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

This plaza was the site of massive fireworks and huge crowds just a week ago. Now it has been transformed into a flower filled park with the city administration building on one side of the plaza and the main post office on the other. Both imposing buildings.

“Not bad as you pass through”
Reviewed 18 March 2014 via mobile

This is Valencia's main plaza for big functions, such as the las fallas festival. It's huge, yet when we attend the giant fireworks (noise, not illumnation), we couldn't walk other than to press against and follow the people in front of us. Fountain, decent official building facades. Nothing too compelling. We liked the look of Plaza de la Reina a bit more.
