  • Beautiful square of the City Council of the city of La Coruña with the municipal Palace which is an emblematic building and the square is pedestrian. ideal to stroll with children, having a parking in the basement. It is square and adjacent streets surrounded by cafés and restaurants of all kinds of prices, from very good and expensive traditional and baratitos. Definitely a site to visit in the Coruña.

  • Both the plaza de Maria Pita as the town hall that is can visit are spectacular. The square with its covered terrace is a wonderful place to eat or drink at any time of the year in a beautiful setting

  • 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!
