Walking through the old city, it is very difficult not to come across the Plaza Mayor. This seems to be a focal point with well kept borders, restaurants and plenty of people milling around in the evening sunshine.

We stopped for breakfast which overlooked this lovely square with its beautiful trees and planting; lots of locals sitting around passing the time on a sunny Sunday morning. Very close to the wonderful walls and churches.

Nice old structure within the walls but the plaza is always with people standing by for some rest or at the cafe for some drinks and meeting friends. It has some greens around to give shades and coolness and benches for the citizens.

This Plaza Mayor has plenty of views of the historical part of the city. It's a must see if you visit Lugo.

When we arrived we were lucky to see the military parade in the square. It was a really nice experience :) the square is really green in this season and full of people.
