We have been here a few times normally around May or June when the weather is sunny and warm. Now in November it is cold and often drizzly and wet. Much like Canada this time of year. The plaza is always a hub of activity. All around are nice shops and plenty of cafes with full menus or finger foods... More

This is the best place to be for any local festival or event, because it's always at the heart of it. It is also a very convenient meeting spot - closed to everybody and full of interesting landmarks that can be used as meeting spots :). Oh and there are drinkign water fountains too - thumbs up :D.

Vitoria Gasteiz itself is a huge town but the old town is small and in the center. Expected more of the old and historic ambiance. Plaza Blanca is an okay place seemed very touristy. The restaurants around did not have much pinchos as we expected and most of them served just about the same kind as if all came from... More

If you like to walk, take several circles inside approximately 1 km radius from this place! The Old city of Vitoria is beautiful and not too crowdy. Authentic Europe in its best.

Definately worth a visit when in Vitoria since its one of the main plazas in the whole city and next to it is the other plaza which is Plaza de España.

A wonderful large oddly shaped square on a slope, rising up towards the old town, and overlooked by the Statue of the Virgen Bianca, in front one of Vitoria's many beautiful Churches. In the centre is a large memorial to the Battle of Vitoria, 'for the Independence of Spain' in the Napoleonic Peninsular War. All around are cafe/bars with the... More

There is the usual line up of cafes and bars. I think this is the place where fountains pop up from the pavement, so beware!

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). Not a place to look for a decent meal though - all cheaper (pasta/pizza) end or tapas rather than... More

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.

Main square of Vitoria was lively even on a chilly day in March. Met there an orchestra from a nearby town of Logrono playing some music. Plaza is quite big, surrounded by old buildings with glass-covered balconies. The monument in the centre commemorates the battle of Vitoria of 1813 during Napoleonic wars, for Spaniards known as Guerra de la Independiencia.... More
