The palatial Ayuntamiento (Town Hall) of Valencia dominates the square, and its bells chime out the hours. Surrounding the plaza are other buildings from the city's golden age, such as the Correos (the main post office). In the center of the plaza, a fountain is surrounded by flower stalls with all the colors, sizes, varieties imagineable. This is a good starting point from which to visit Valencia's old quarter or today's most fashionable shops.

This is probably where everyday life of Valencia happens. The busses stop here, people go here to have lunch and shop. Nice to look around and pass by the shops and beautiful buildings or rest somewhat on one of the benches.

This plaza is the true hub of activity in Valencia. During the winter they build up an ice skating rink for kids and adults alike. Many of the surrounding areas are adorned with Christmas decorations. I recommend Plaza Ayuntamiento for perfect people watching. Surrounded by amazing and historic architecture, the plaza should be on your list to visit.

We were in the area for the new year's eve celebration. We had a great time. The local celebration was very nice and not as busy as I imagined. Very family friendly. Another great space in a great city.

You'd have to be nuts to come to Valencia and not check out the ayuntamiento. The town hall is beautiful and since the new government got in its now open to the public most mornings and has a free museum inside with some really great artifacts.

There's no secret that there's lots and lots of plazas in this city. And that's a good thing since it makes it easier to remember where you are and not get lost as much as you otherwise could. This plaza is very big though if we compare it to Plaza de la Reina or Plaza de la Virgen. Here is... More
