  • And one of those places where you are OK with the surrounding environment. The square quite normal and very much alive in the evening where soul of many cafes and bars serving everything and is filled with people. Carina la fontana.

  • Place to see for this statue in the center of the fountain... The sweetness of life... Do not hesitate to make the church next door

  • Visiting Valencia you will pass many times to this square, I'm sure you and every time you stop and take a picture from different angles. I'd love to see her in the middle of March 14 to 19, Las Fallas, from where it will be in its heyday.

  • Beautiful square in the heart of the historical center of the city. The scene of all major cultural events, religious and folkloric throughout the year. Place always animated, you can sit at one of the tables of the many bars and cafes and see the city pass you before! Very charming even at night with the cathedral and the church lit! Do not miss @gargio76
  • lovely little plaza, gets shady and cold later in the day. nice to hangout and have some beers and watch the world go round.
  • Beautiful plaza. Cathedral in the plaza is gorgeous. Lots of restaurants in plaza
  • Great place to sit and watch people go by. Great for lunch or dinner and a great meeting place
  • Surrounded by church, this location has a great view and ambiance. You can easily enjoy the various restaurants in the vincinity, and you can see the maybe 1-2 small children feeding the birds or running through the flock of birds on the ground. Sit back and enjoy some good food, a cold chilled beer and relax as you enjoy a well deserved meal in a beautiful location, while enjoying the cool summer breeze.
