Nice square with many bars and a lot of folks. From here you can visit all the places of interest in Vitoria. There is a beautifull statue in the middle.

Love the buzz of this plaza. Core of the city. Best views are from the 'Virgen Blanca Cafeteria' (had breakfast there every day in my stay, fresh orange juice, whatever to eat and a Latte for 2'5 £, and amazing service). Loved the street it leads to, specially the Correria (boutique charming shops). The plaza is like a decorated left... More

After the sites and shops closed down, we found that this plaza was a great place to walk around or just sit and relax. A few little cafes/bars were open for pizza or beer or gelato. Very clean and safe atmosphere.

This square is very lively specially at weekends. Lots of restaurants and pintxo bars. Lovely typical white houses with balconies around the square. The old town is just behind the plaza.

I visited this place on a International Music day, so there were a lots of musicians playing in the square, which added on the amazing atmosphere. Try mojito in one of the bars near the green letters saying Vitoria Gasteiz. If you don't want to end up soaking wet, watch out for the water splashing from the floor.

The "Plaza de la Virgen Blanca" is in the center of the city. There are many places and restaurants to visit around this place. In 2014 has been nominated to Gastronomic city of the year and all the weekends there are new "tapas" to taste.

Wonderful atmospheric plaza as you go up the hill, with the old parts to two sides. Sheltered from the cold wind in March with cafes/bars around.
