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.
