Sloping historic square with a monument to the Battle of Vitoria of 1813. Also location of the name of the city spelled in greenery, a token of the city's designation as greenest city.

This triangular square is the centre of Vitoria-Gasteiz. All city life starts from it. It´s quite simple and austere but it means a lot to the locals. On the top part we find the Church of Saint Michael which hosts in its interior a superb...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.

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!
