Plaza de la Virgen Blanca, Vitoria-Gasteiz

(750+ reviews on the web)
Architectural Building
Rising to prominence in the 17th century, during the expansion of the city of Vitoria, Plaza de la Virgen Blanca today continues to serve as a popular meeting place and hub of the surrounding town. Admire the wood-and-glass verandas and traditional construction of 19th-century Spanish homes surrounding the square. The large monument in the center, dedicated to the 1813 Battle of Vitoria, commemorates the victory that forced Napoleon’s retreat from Spain. Grab a coffee or some local Basque treats from one of the surrounding cafes, and explore the plaza’s many nooks and crannies. Be sure to bring your camera, as the surrounding buildings, backed by the spire of the Church of San Miguel, provide a popular photo opportunity.

  • This is the main square in Vitoria-Gasteiz. Many white window frames are of various colors of the walls around the House, but, as the name suggests landscape white square is excellent. Thanks to the Tower of the Church of San Miguel seen from here, the upgrade is.

  • I think that it is one of the most emblematic places of the town from Vitoria and that you must visit and soak up the wandering global and cosmopolitan people, both seated in one of their vancos as the many terraces that mark the perimeter.

  • A place beautiful, wide, clean and with buildings that catch attention with their white wooden balconies. It has a lot of class.

  • A great square with amazing architecture and an interesting historical background. There are plenty of restaurants and shops nearby.
  • A very beautiful square! Very lively on Friday evenings and weekends. The place to be for people of all ages . . .
  • It a great place to walk around, check out the little stores, try some food, meet friends and enjoy the weekend. Lot of things to see.
  • This square is the true heart of Vitoria. Local people like to gather here or cross it while walking through the nice pedestrian streets of Vitoria's center.
  • Just about perfect, given the right season.
