The palatial Ayuntamiento (Town Hall) of Valencia dominates the square, and its bells chime out the hours. Surrounding the plaza are other buildings from the city's golden age, such as the Correos (the main post office). In the center of the plaza, a fountain is surrounded by flower stalls with all the colors, sizes, varieties imagineable. This is a good starting point from which to visit Valencia's old quarter or today's most fashionable shops.

Our hotel room was overlooking this square,which is quite near to the station and not far from the cathedral, so should be included in a visit to the historical part of the city. The tourist information office is inside the 'ajuntamento'.

We stayed at the nearby Reina Victoria on Carrer de los Barques and even managed a cheeky spot of free parking on the Plaza which is available between 2000 Saturday till 0900 on Monday. Beautiful plaza surrounded by Flower Sellers and magnificent buildings.

This square is the living heart of Valencia. Beautiful buildings as the town hall, the post office Hotel Venecia make it glamour. A large fountain and very wide borders. There is a lot of traffic but it is easy to get from one side to another.

A wonderful square, in the center of Valencia, with such beautiful buildings. And I think it would be more beautiful if it were only pedestrian, without the big buses and a lot of cars and passageways. I would love there some restaurants with terraces and benches for sitting.

A beautifull square in the centre of Valencia. The only thing that is such a shame in Valencia is the amount of cars in the city centre. On this square as well. They should really make their centre more enjoyable. Squares to sit down, relax and have a drink.

This is obviously one of the main squares in the city, with 2 outstanding buildings: the town hall and the elaborate post office. It is worth visiting the town hall, and do not miss the view from the balcony over the square. The square itself is a bit dull, to be frank.

This plaza leads from the main station to the old town and holds many places of interest. There is a small tourist office located in the plaza
