This small plaza has so much more going for it than the very large Plaza Mayor, here stands the former Town Hall, a statue of a Spanish Admiral above a pretty flower garden. We road through here on our cycling tour, and it was the starting and ending point of our tapas tour, it would seem to be a much loved plaza of the locals, as well as peaceful.

The Plaza de la Villa is a picturesque square that is located by the old ayuntamiento (Casa de la Villa). The old ayuntamiento was constructed in between 1644 and 1696 and has beautiful architecture. There is a beautiful statue of Alvaro de Bazan, who planned the ill-fated Spanish Armada attack on England. The statue was made by the famous sculptor Mariano Benlliure, one of the best sculptors in Spanish history.
