Owner description: 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.

“Attractive fountain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

The square is busy with traffic and people. Cafes surround the square. The fountains are lit spectacularly at night.

“Fallas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

This is the place to be at 2.00pm every day during the Fallas. This is when you can enjoy the Mascleta - My Valencian friend told me it is to wake up Spring! I can believe this, a wall of sound - brilliant! As is the atmosphere.

“Sit and watch the hustle and bustle”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

A lovely oasis to just sit and chill surrounded by stunning buildings. The main town hall and the post office are both on this square and only a couple of minutes walk to the train station nord which is well worth a visit

“The hub of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

This is place to start your trip to the city. A buzzing place worthy of sitting and watching the city in action. Everything "touristy" is walkable from here. The excellent Bus and Metro network is also accessible from here. DONT eat or dink here take a walk a few side-streets away and see the prices drop!
