  • A very nice square, which offers the possibility to make beautiful pictures from different perspectives; definitely worth a ride.

  • Just outside the real centre is this spacious square. Beautiful fountain and views of a beautiful, Romanesque church. The hospitality industry is limited. Right that makes it a pretty square perhaps.

  • Lovely Plaza de la Virgen, not far from the Cathedral. A beautiful central fountain where you can even sit for some nice photos. Very breezy, especially out of season. The square is very large with a nice view around. Aside from the fountain little else, but worth a visit.

  • 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.
