Plaza de la Virgen Blanca, Vitoria-Gasteiz

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.

  • One of the busiest squares in the city. With beautiful buildings to admire while you take something on one of the terraces

  • Plaza de la Virgen Blanca is a place with enough life within the general calm that reigns in Vitoria. Seems particularly notable Dim and special night lighting that, against the trend of excessively light that occurs in the whole of Spain, here it gives the feeling of being one in a central European country.

  • Too much noise and the food was not too good, specially if you take into consideration the price it had. All in all, a bad experience, the only redeeming dish was the beet cake.
  • Some excellent food here, very reasonable prices, staff friendly and helpful also!
  • Main place in the city center to lunch o take a coffee
  • Good but nothing spectacular. Look around town
  • Expensive, disordered waitress
