  • 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.
  • Wonderful place to be, kind of magic. Great restaurants, a cute fountain to take pictures, and ancient churches that give this place "un je ne sais quoi" that I love.
  • Lots of outside cafes. One of my favourite places in Valencia for sitting and having a coffee in the sunshine and watching the world go by. Lots of tourists about so expect to pay tourist prices but worth the little extra in my opinion.
  • Awesome place, excellent for panoramic & 360 spheres photos! Very cool even on hot summer days because of the water fountain.
  • Beautiful place in Valencia. Rich architecture and cultural variety in this plaza
