A spot not to be missed

The Plaza Redonda (Round Plaza) is a corner of Valencia, that wandering aimlessly, I found ... It has four entrances, one from the Plaza de Lope de Vega, and it is very near Valencia Cathedral.

As the name suggests, it has a circular plan. Forming another circle within the plaza, and around a fountain (also round :-)), there are painted wooden huts, antique, home to a business that in other cities is disappearing in silence: haberdashery. Indeed, it sells all kinds of threads, Pearls, lace...

Most traders are elders, and if you stay wandering around long enough taking photos or simply contemplating the ensemble, you can see how they sell, how they advise their clients, the old-fashioned way.

The outer perimeter, is made up of the houses themselves, it is also full of business’ premises, mostly selling crafts, one is a restaurant. You can see that it has been rehabilitated and they all show off wooden shutters that look good on this entirety.

Not to be missed, outside of all the usual tourist routes, it is worth a look, stay a while.

Very traditional

It is a place in Valencia that I loved, as I went in the early hours of the morning, and I do not know if it is always like this, but there were only a few old ladies gathered sewing precious fabrics. The Plaza Redonda has a circular shape obviously, it is in a very central location in the old district, and around it everything is pedestrian, meaning once you are inside the plaza you hardly hear any noise.

In the upper plaza there are some houses with the same rounded shape and a there is also a fountain in the centre. It was a plaza built for commercial transactions, particularly for selling meat and fish. But now you find above all haberdasheries, household items stores, all still quite traditional, there are not many tourist souvenirs. The women sit and work together, chatting and laughing. On the weekend it is a little market with more people.

Centre for street vendors

Nestled in the heart of the Ciutat Vella (Old town), the beautiful Plaza Redonda, which currently is being renovated, was built in 1840. This Valencian corner full of flavour has four entrances and a central fountain, and is locked on the upper floor by a ring of three-storey houses with iron balconies.

At present, this place, crammed with tiny shops, is a centre for street vendors and a must visit on the weekend, when the plaza appears to be partying. Originally the plaza was the site where textiles were traded, yarn, lace, embroidery, buttons, and everything else that had something to do with the manufacture of apparel.

Reading the travel diaries or hearing...

Reading the travel diaries or hearing the stories of many friends who have been to Valencia, I am always astonished not to find above (going deeper most of the time I find out that they have not even visited) this little square that I instead, remained very impressed by its characteristics and which I found really pretty. Plaza Redonda (Round Square), known by the Valencian as "El Clot" (The Hole) for its particular form, meets walking along the road that joins the most famous [then = 79411] "Plaza del Mercado" [/ then] and "Plaza de la Reina". Along its circumference there are many ceramic workshops, souvenirs and haberdashery ... In fact it is not difficult to find together the craft "bolliteras" (they create with lace plummet) intent to carry out their work. On Sunday we held a popular and typical market. It 's really delicious and if I were you, I would not miss it!

Leggendo i diari di viaggio o sentendo i racconti di molti amici che sono stati a Valencia, mi stupisco sempre di non trovare citata (andando più a fondo la maggior parte delle volte scopro che non l'hanno nemmeno visitata) questa piccola piazza che a me è invece rimasta molto impressa per la sua peculiarità e che ho trovato davvero molto graziosa.
Plaza Redonda (Piazza Rotonda), conosciuta dai valenciani come “El Clot” (La Buca) per la sua particolare forma, si incontra camminando lungo la strada che unisce le più famose “Plaza del Mercado” e “Plaza de la Reina”.
Lungo la sua circonferenza si trovano numerose botteghe di ceramica, souvenirs e mercerie...E infatti non è difficile trovarvi riunite le artigiane “bolliteras” (che creano pizzi col piombino) intente a realizzare i propri lavori.
La domenica vi si svolge un popolare e caratteristico mercato.
E' davvero deliziosa e, fossi in voi, non me la perderei!!!

Round plaza de valencia. the paradise of seamstresses and weavers.

Cuesta find but worth it. It is locked in the old district, accessed by three passages that cross stone arches. Inside there are several stalls selling lace, embroidery threads, lace, traditional dresses. All very well presented and of high quality and variety. It has business hours as the majority of the seats close between 13 and 16,30hs.

Preciosa plaza

Cuesta encontrarla pero vale la pena. Está encerrada en pleno barrio antiguo, se accede por tres pasajes que atraviesan unos arcos de piedra. En su interior hay varios puestos que venden puntillas, hilos de bordar, encajes, vestidos tradicionales. Todo muy buen presentado y de gran calidad y variedad. Tiene horario comercial así que la mayoría de los puestos cierran entre las 13 y las 16,30hs.

Plaza redonda - place redonda spanish...

Plaza Redonda - Place Redonda Spanish is one of the unusual sites of the Valencian capital. It was built in 1840 by the Valencian architect Salvador Escrig. In the middle stands the fountain installed ten years later. Plaza Redonda is occupied by commercial establishments offering all types of items. Sometimes here you can see the people who sell or offer the animals: kittens, puppies. This is an incredible place that I loved. I recommend you visit.

La Plaza Redonda - la Place Redonda en espagnol est l'un des sites insolites de la capitale valencienne. Elle a été construite en 1840 par l'architecte valencien, Salvador Escrig. Au milieu se dresse la petite fontaine installée dix années plus tard. La Plaza Redonda est occupé par les établissements commerciaux offrant tous types d'articles. Parfois ici on peut voir les gens qui vendent ou offrent les animaux: les chatons, les chiots. C'est un endroit incroyable que j'ai beaucoup aimé. Je vous recommande de le visiter.

Charming little square in the historic center of valncia

Walking the streets of Valencia come across an inlet, and as curious, could not fail to discover what it was ... because a small square of circular form super friendly, cute and different. The Plaza Redonda, as the name implies, is circular and is full of shops and bars (which can not miss in a Spanish city) form. A delight to be a little time watching the movement, since the structure of the square helps keep resquinho climate ... one of escapinha calorzão he did.

Pracinha charmosa no do centro histórico de valência

Caminhando pelas ruas de Valência nos deparamos com uma entrada, e como curiosos, não podia deixar de descobrir o que era... pois uma pracinha de forma circular super simpática, bonitinha e diferente.

A Praça Redonda, como o nome já diz, tem forma circular e está cheia de lojinhas e bares (o que não pode faltar numa cidade espanhola). Uma delícia estar um tempinho observando o movimento, já que a estrutura da praça ajuda a manter o clima resquinho... uma escapinha do calorzão que fazia.

A round square

Between the Town Hall Square and Cathedral Square lies this little round plaza where a lot of shops and street stalls rodenado a small fountain in the center. When I visited, Saturday noon, all the shops were closed except for one, but when the shops are open much traffic from people interested in selling embroidered here.

Una plaza redonda

Entre la plaza del ayuntamiento y la plaza de la catedral se encuentra esta pequeña plaza redonda donde hay un montón de tiendas y puestos callejeros rodenado a una pequeña fuente en el centro. Cuando la visité, sábado al mediodía, estaban cerradas todas las tiendas a excepción de una, pero cuando las tiendas están abiertas hay mucho tránsito de gente interesada en los bordados que aquí se venden.

What remains is a place with no charm

This was a mythical place, with a special charm and tradition that our beloved mayor has been saddled. I recommend you pass by and you head to the central market and miss the streets of Carmen. If you eat the llibrer tavern.

Lo que queda es una plaza sin ningun encanto

Esta era una plaza mítica, con un encanto y solera especial que nuestra querida alcaldesa se ha tenido que cargar. Te recomiendo que pases de largo y te dirijas al mercado central y te pierdas por las calles del Carmen. Si quieres comer tasca el llibrer.
