Happened to pass through and whilst I took a few photographs, it wouldn't be worth going out of your way.

A nice spot to sit out and enjoy a coffee or lunch. Not as impressive as other squares in Europe but worth stopping here before a wander around the old town

visited the square on a rainy day but the plaza was still very beautiful! tried to go inside but Policia at door wouldn't let us in unfortunately. Surrounding streets full of shopping and choices to eat/drink its worth a trip to see the plaza!

This place is essential to know the old town center. Very accessible by car, we can park underneath the Plaza. Normally in Spain this places are known as Plaza Mayor.

This is a very attractive plaza in the town centre. It is made up of impressive public buildings hotels and bar/restaurants. Parts are under cover if it rains and there is an underground car park. Short walk from the port.

The Plaza de Maria Pita is just behind the buildings which face the harbour near the Old Town. Close by are various attractions including many restaurants at all prices, good shopping, the star if the English Camino to Santiago de Compostela, the Military Museum, theatres, and the tomb of Sir John Moore, the British hero in the Napoleonic wars.
