The old town of Ourense has a many nice old houses and small plazas. Plaza Mayor is one of them. Cafes at the Plaza and in the small streets nearby.

I’ve visited Plaza Mayor on several occasions with friends. It’s always been an enjoyable time here. Have sat at several of the different cafes for after lunch drinks & conversations. Definitely a highlight when visiting Ourense

Although it does have limitations as to its layout it is still a beautiful place to visit. Unfortunately it has to compete with the plaza majors in Salamanca and Madrid and it does pale in comparison, Lots ot se around it.

Lots of bars around here where you can sit and relax while admiring the scenery. There is also a little train that leaves from here to do a sightseeing trip around town.

Shaped like square. Has cafes, shops and restaurants. It's where you can access the tourist trolley that takes you around the city.

A place to see and then walk away. It doesn't boast of a major meeting place and is quite barren. It is in the city center.

Every time I am in the city Ourence it is in the evening. Plaza Mayor is a great place to get coffee and see the sights.
