  • 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!
