  • More beautiful square for my taste to the plaza mayor of Madrid, is at the center of the city with the City Council, is cool I have seen in Spain with all the surrounding streets connected with square, a wonder

  • Square of great dimension, chaired by the municipal Palace in modernist style, front which the monument is situated in honor of local heroin María Pita. Good place to have a beer or a drink in one of the numerous terraces, or to see any action during the August holidays.

  • City Hall and chaired by the local heroine who gives it its name, is a fabulous meeting point in the heart of the city from which one can get lost among grocery stores of all life, elegant restaurants of new-style and bars of canes of all life. A marvel.

  • 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!
