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.

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.

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
