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.

“Full of historical places”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

If you want to visit Valencia, this is the place where to start. Situated in the center, this square is a must-see for everyone because there you can see great example of valencian architecture like the city hall. Also the fountain in the middle is nice. Quiet during the day, by night it becomes active and full of people. Lots of shops and restaurants are in there.

“Beautiful spot”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

We came here for the tourist office in order to buy tickets for the aquarium. It's a very lovely spot and we had to spend some time here taking photos.

“Thanks to the info. booth we started our trip right”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

We spent 3 days in Valencia. The first plaza that we stepped foot on was Plaza Ayuntamiento. It was a nice elegant place to visit, surrounded by historic architecture. The 2 places you must take photos are the city hall and the post office. In the plaza there are a few modern sculptures and a working splashing fountain. I appreciate the info.booth right beside the fresh flower stands. The staff were very helpful. They gave us suggestions of what to do, what kind of tickets we needed. Thank you for your help. We surely had a wonderful stay in Valencia. We also found a nice restaurant where we had breakfast 2 mornings in a row. The price was much more reasonable than what the hotel charged us. An interesting thing is that all the restaurants use oranges as paper weights to hold the napkins down from the wind on the patio tables.

Happy Travelling!
