Owner description: 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.

Drop in for the 14:00 Macienta display. Like nothing I've ever seen!! A 6min display of the loudest fireworks that are designed to be heard and FELT rather than seen. Incredible crowd (I was told approx 100k people) crammed into the square for this display.
During non-Fallas visit, it's still a great place to go and have coffee and watch the world pass you by.

The plaza has a nice fountain and overlooks the town hall. However, the Mascleta during Las Fallas is totally INSANE. There are hundreds of thousands of people packed in like sardines.
The fireworks are the loudest thing I ever hear. Very exciting daytime pyrotechnics I have not seen anywhere else. The Valencians are the masters!

Visited the Plaza on numerous occasions during the Fallas and watched the Mascleta 3 times. At 2 pm during the last week the square comes alive with a 5 minute display of aerial bombshells. The place is very busy so it is a good idea to arrive early.

Lots of street vendors selling drinks, sun glasses etc.

The place is well organized with cleaning crews coming in directly after the display to clear up the mess.
