Located in the old town of Leon, and even though it's called something else, its official name is Plaza de Santa María del Camino, as is the church of the same name. There is a characteristically medieval lion, so I recommend that the ladies don't wear heels walking around the square. Don't miss it, and if you can go at night, even better.
The Plaza Mayor is located in the "Wet District" of Léon, in the drinking area and the most emblematic restoration point of the city. It is a pedestrian plaza, which has recently built an underground parking accessible by foot from the square and by car by Caño Badillo Street. This is a typical Spanish square, surrounded by houses with arcades, where there are a multitude of bars which during good weather make good use of the terraces - it is therefore a great place to stop and have a drink. The Plaza Mayor is the venue of a traditional market of fruits, vegetables and sometimes small animals like rabbits or chickens, every Wednesday and Saturday mornings. It also hosts several holiday events such as concerts, tapas fairs, or the traditional "meeting" of the Good Friday procession. In the past it also served as a bullring. There are two notable buildings: The NH Plaza Mayor, and before that the old Town Hall, a building of Baroque façade flanked by two towers. Throughout its history it has had various functions: Municipal School, Municipal Archives, Home Relief, court, child orphanage ...
This is, with a doubt, the meeting point for all visitors and tourists ve come to Leon to admire the world's most wonderful Gothic cathedral, the Cathedral of León. It's a fully pedestrian square, so you can take a leisurely stroll in the shade of this wonderful Gothic monument, which contains much more.
Astorga's Plaza Mayor is in the historical and commercial centre of the city, in what may be the ancient Roman forum. It's rectangular and is surrounded by buildings with porches and balconies. It was designed by Francisco de la Lastra in the late 17th century. The most remarkable building in the square is the Baroque Town Hall, from 1765, topped by a clock with its famous personages. Another building worth visiting in this square is the "Botica", which still retains shelves and pharmacy bottles from the early in the last century. In addition, the square is the site of fairs and markets.
In the main square of the town hall Ponferrada, is one of the most important squares of the city. In the square, part of the hotel is located as well as several cafes. There is also the statue of waffle, which we wanted to take a picture with. You can get to the square following Broad Street, and if you look a bit around, you will find the street after the city council, which as its name suggests, it is behind city hall. Like it or not, if we pass through Ponferrada, we always visit this plaza.
The Roman Square is in the centre of Astorga, and is surrounded by a conglomeration of interesting places like the Roman Museum (The Ergastula), the Church of St. Bartholomew, the former seminary of the Redemption Convent, the Church of San Francisco, and the Chapel of Santa Veracruz. Furthermore, there are remains of an ancient Roman house called Domus Mosaic in the middle. Some magnificent mosaics are found inside. There is also a memorial dedicated to the Brotherhood of Astorga with its august cities from two thousand years ago that surrounds the square.
