The plaza was beautiful, but very busy in the bars around it, though we were able to get seats at a terrace bar (though not on the shady side, so had to rely on the parasols to keep the sun off).

A great central spot in Vitoria to people watch, take in some sun and to enjoy some food and drink. Plaza de La Virginia blanca links to plaza neuvo another nice spot and then beyond that is the shopping district.

Plaza is quite big, surrounded by old buildings with glass-covered balconies.

Good place for pictures, don't miss out on the Vitoria-Gasteiz monument in grass. A selfie with this is a must.

Very attractive location with bars and restaurants round the outside. The monument in the middle is quite breath-taking depicting the defeat of the French by Wellington. There are little fountains coming up through the pavements.
