Admire beautiful Baroque architecture in the heart of the city at Plaza Mayor. Constructed in the mid-18th century, the plaza boasts traditional Spanish decoration of equilateral arches supporting three top levels and is home to the city’s town hall and steeple. Have a round of tapas and wine at one of the famous bars that line the area or simply take a stroll through the connecting streets exploring the plaza’s six main entrances.

Plaza Mayor reviews
very impres in night time with all he lights arround, all restaurante and caffe arround, people to walking talking and laughing, families with children and traditional singers more »
This is a great place to sit and have a drink or an ice-cream, stroll around the shops under the arches and people watch. It's a huge square and a good stopping off point as you explore the city, more »
The living room of this magic city center. Be there and go with the flow. It cannot be better. Definitely one of the most magnificent squares, only rivaled by the great Italian examples. Pure pleasure.
Loved it. A nice easy walk with parking nearby, lots of places to eat and different food to choose from. We had a nice coffee in the morning, walked to the river and back again for lunch at the plaza. Perfect.
