Calatayud’s Plaza de España or Plaza Mayor is where you find the town hall, built in the XVI century and restored in the XIX, as well as various manor houses in the Aragonese style of the XVII century, modified in the XIX.
The highlights of the square are the colours and the tilting of the buildings, it is impossible to find a straight one. Nowadays the square is being restored, and in a short time we will be able to see it in all its splendour. What is more, in this square they hold the start of the feast of San Roque, the patron saint of the city.
Even though it is hidden among the branches of the trees of this tiny square it is a statue that has interested me since childhood. Everyone knows this place in Zaragoza because it is one of the main venues. The English Court is found there, but on the other hand, it is not that the fate of the regulars at the square, but the bars Zaragoza dick (the "Zone", and I know, creativity absent) almost next door, and the bars of the "Roll" (where I grew up). And then of course, here are the guns mentioned ("lightning" and "tiger" if memory serves me), I remember Zaragoza places, pointing to the English Court, tender irony.
Since the early 12th century, the city of Calatayud became a plaza bordered by the kingdom of Castile, which boosted them in commercial development, but also marked the grave disaster motivated by the war of the two Pedros: "Pedro I The Cruel of Castilla" and "Pedro IV of Aragon." As such a plaza, the city had access to the doors inside, some of which are still preserved. This plaza is in the central Paseo de las Cortes de Aragon, and it's a reproduction of what was once the city. There are also several entrances, and recorded in each of them is the door's original name. Inside they've built a children's playground, which also has a garden where you can rest.
