As with all Plazas in Spain, you are not lacking in entertainment, food, shopping, etc. This is no exception. The Plaza Mayor is very lovely, with many trees to get out of the heat (while I was there, it was 104 in the sun!). The lovely cobblestone just adds to its chams.

Nice place to enjoy people watching. This is where the locals gather to meet and have a drink or ice cream. Pastries, goodies, coffee and drinks are all available.

The Plázaro Mayor is very nice and next to the cathedral. It is a pity that in summer theres are music performances which require awfull big technical installations.

This is the heart of the city. A fine example of a plaza mayor. Locals and tourists alike passing through all day long. Great bars/restaurants with tables and umbrellas set up around the plaza. Grab a table, order a beer, and watch the people go by.

Large square with atmosphere housing sidewalk cafes and restaurants and some shops. If you are lucky, you will be able to enjoy the local entertainment in the central gazebo.

Calm and peaceful, large square with the cathedral on one side and a plaza at the centre. Shops around where I can eat and do touristy shopping. Nice place to chill

A smaller version of Madrid's main square. Segovia is a far quieter city than the former but it does mean you can absorb more detail about the individual buildings in this square. Its true that, if you wander just a few feet from the Plaza Major, you will be able to enjoy the same food for several euros less; however,... More

A small picturesque plaza. Not much to see, but a good place to sit for awhile, relax and take in the view of the cathedral.
