A most disappointing Plaza (Placa) Mayor (Major) made worse by the fact it is where you find Burger King and has clearly seen beter days by the dated "shopping centre" built beneath it. Such a shame as could be so beautiful....

There's nothing absolutely fantastic about this square - except its size and expanse. Very impressive. It's more impressive when it's empty because you can see it all.

This square is on the main pedestrian route from the seafront to Plaza de Espana. It is therefore traversed by very many people every day. However there is little to make you want to stop and spend some time there. There is the usual mix...More

We found this Plaza, eventually, after being misdirected a few times. Direct/obvious access is via many steep steps - but we were directed to a lift (past the main entrance/steps, up an entry, on the right). The Plaza is quite large and has fair a...More
