I cannot say that this is the highlight of Segovia. During our road trip we came across with several other similar squares. It is nice having a coffee though early in the morning, since after 11:30-12:00 it is getting very crowded due to the daily visitors that arrive from Madrid.

At the base of the mountain on top of the taxi rank hotel restaurants and at the start of all the attractions , right by the aqueducts it's the best place to start or end your tour of Segovia .

The plaza is rather large and open air. It is very interesting with some paintings on some walls. Well worth the look.

Our hotel was in the square so we were fortunate. Its old buildings have an ambience of that period and are wonderful to admire. There was a market in the square the morning we arrived which added to its vibrant feel. A must to see.

Lovely spot by the cathedral with a band stand, street cafes and little streets leading off. Drinks weren't overpriced.
