  • A nice cosy place in the Centre of Valencia. Please take a place on the edge of the fountain and see what's around you and don't forget to take pictures. Several terraces here.

  • It must see, in addition to its beauty, good atmosphere, Plaza is forced step if you want to gain access to the Cathedral, which incidentally is very sad that they charge you €8 for your visit.

  • One of the best plazas, great atmosphere during the evening with the cathedral and many nice restaurants to eat. Usually there's some street artists playing good music and making it magic! Note: it's super clean!
  • Beautiful area. Go to the latest slackens to eat .fantastic food. Lovely staff. Excellent prices.
  • This is a beautiful lively place to visit. Like most Plazas in Spain, there will be music. There is a fountain and places to eat. There is something for everyone on the Family. We came in the summer of this year. There was a show for the kids with activities and music and dancing. We were smiling the whole time. A must see when in the area.
  • Really nice "plaza" with pulsing atmosphere during the evening. Small Tip:)- if you want good dinner you can find better places;)
  • Very lively tourist oriented place. Beautiful during the day and in the evening. You can take beautiful pictures sit for nice coffee. Usually very crowded.
