Markets (VI)


We are back again. Hello fellows, here the photo of the Mayor Square you wanted we post. A lot of work and a journey to Barcelone to my wife´s sister delays a little our daily blog (that never was a daily but a two-times-a-week one).
This square, originally created by king´s Philip II. of Spain arquitect Juan de Herrera in the 1590th it was finished in 1619 closing its still open fronts. Once place for market and justice, today it is one of the most beautiful squares in Spain with lots of cultural events all the year.
