  • The Plaza de la Virgin is named after the statue which stands proud at the centre of this lively and bustling thoroughfare, a stones throw from the famous Cathedral. A great place for people watching....  more »
  • This place is filled with beauty and always full of people. You can find small shops around this square and this fountain is really nice..  more »
  • The past envelopes you, transports your mind to time gone but not forgotten. Beauty on every building ,yes on, and in every building. Orange trees bend their branches offering their bounty to passing parched awe struck tourists. Take a seat at the many bars and restaurants surrounding the plaza and enjoy a bit of people watching as you sip the local aqua di Valencia . Magic, beautiful worth the visit.
  • A beautiful plaza to just sit and enjoy. Please do tip the artist who performs. Important info: don't eat food from the center because food isn't that great but you sure can have sagrias.
