Needing attention

When you think of Plaza Mayor’s, the obvious ones are in Salamanca and Madrid, hugely impressive public areas. We felt this one was needing some TLC. It appeared soulless and empty for most of the day. Even later at night, when equivalent ones would be packed out, hardly a bar of restaurant was open.

Find a lovely place to sip your favorite drink then watch people in a way you enjoy your travel by opening your mind how to infuse yourself at the moment.

Plaza Mayor is interesting but maybe too late for reconfiguration
Oct 2019
Avila reconfigured their Plaza Mayor to become more tourist and local citizen friendly unfortunately, it may be too late. Many of the locals don't come to this area and tourist just started enjoying this. Unfortunately there isn't much there, business are little to none - restaurants etc.

Cool Main City Square
Sep 2019
This is a large city square that was filled with covered vendor stalls when I was there. The booths were mostly aimed at locals by selling produce and meats rather than souvenirs. All in a nice setting with the city hall at the back end of the square.

Typical Spanish town square
Oct 2019
The plaza is undistinguished compared to the other wonderful sights in the city.
Perhaps high noon is not the best time to visit.

Main square is a small space.
Sep 2019 • Friends
Just in front of the Cathedral, a few stores and shops were open at 2PM on a Saturday afternoon. A large portion is given over to parking it seemed. A wedding and a very large group of motorcycles occupied all the spaces available. We were in the Cathedral as the motorcycles all seemed to leave. A very loud roar could be heard, even though the thickness of the walls.

Pretty indistinctive.
Sep 2019
We were here during the annual medieval fair with stalls in all the streets and squares so the whole town became one big marketplace and therefore difficult to ascertain what was what. However, what we eventually discovered as being the Plaza Mayor was not particularly imposing and certainly not the most impressive of landmarks with nothing really of note to distinguish it from any other of the plazas. That is not to say that it was not worth a visit but certainly would not be a reason to visit Avila.

Some decent cafés and bars, a nice place to eat and relax.
Jun 2019
I was quite surprised that this plaza wasn't busier, there are several decent bars and cafés here and the tapas was plentiful. We ended up spending time here each day and the people we dealt with in the cafés were friendly and attentive. Just a nice space to chill out in after a good walk around the walls.

Typical Spanish square

Nothing special for a Spanish plaza. Restaurants and shops around the edges, with loads of space in the middle. Arches at one end.
Would only visit again if passing through.

Probably not the best Plaza Mayor, though OK..

Spent half a day walking around the walls, shops and cathedral, and at some stage end up passing through the Plaza Mayor - this one not as impressive as some of the other town plazas, but worth just to pass through - certainly not a 'must-see'
