Simply put, grab a table on the square, have a vermouth / beer / wine and watch the world go by! A very pretty square.

This plaza may is a bit off the beaten path but worth visiting especially in the afternoons/evenings/weekends as this where many locals come to have a drink or eat or people watch.

We were passing through the plaza and stopped for refreshment. The architecture is worth stopping and seeing.

We passed through the plaza early in the morning while walking the Camino de Santiago. It was a nicw place to have a coffee and see the city wake up before heading out for the day.

The Plaza Mayor is beautiful, and on top of that, on saturday mornings it holds a market where you can buy local grown fruits, vegetables, cheeses and chorizos. Great atmosphere

There are a lot of pubs, bars,... And people around! It's very lively here! I reccommend to try as many "tapas" as possible.
