  • This place is essential to know the old town center. Very accessible by car, we can park underneath the Plaza. Normally in Spain this places are known as Plaza Mayor. 
  • Excellent service and a very clean place with attentive and friendly people. It was a working day but we found a site that you can not miss. Highly recommended.

  • It is a place that is can not miss if you go to La Coruña, there are guided tours of marked characters of the era, that the story of the square, the Town Hall occupies a real monument that presides over the square, everything is super clean and very well maintained

  • Nice place for starting a sightsee tour for Coruna.
  • Don't miss this place when visiting Coruña, not to miss the fact that the main statue is dedicated to Maria Pita!
  • One of the Major Place of all Spain. I do prefer it than another one in Spain like "La Plaza Mayor" in Madrid.
  • Recommended and beautiful place to start the journey in A Coruña.
  • I guess it is the most beautiful Plaza Mayor in Spain!
