Spend time wandering around Plaza de Maria Pita and admiring the grand architecture that surrounds it. The city hall is particularly striking.

Stop for a drink or bite to eat in one of the many terraced cafes and restaurants. This square is also home to the city’s tourist office, if you need a map or extra advice about any attractions.

  • The place is beautiful! In my humble opinion this square is no doubt the one of the best places in A Coruña
  • A beautiful square in A coruña in which have a beer and some small rations. The statue and the facade of the houses on it makes it a really nice area.
  • One of the Major Place of all Spain. I do prefer it than another one in Spain like "La Plaza Mayor" in Madrid.
  • Great little plaza for snacks and drinks.
  • Beautiful historic part of the city
