We sat here and watched the world go by on a Sunday afternoon. There were a lot of others doing the same and there was plenty to watch as it really is a bustling large square. Lots of nice buildings around it and as we were there during Fallas there was also a very large Virgin Mary structure there too.

We visited the Plaza just after the Festival of the Virgin. The huge monument covered in flowers was still in the square. Much of the ground was strewn with flowers. Facing into the plaza is the Basilica of the Virgin with it's amazing painted dome, one of the entrances to the huge cathedral, the fountain celebrating the irrigation canals that... More

A very lovely plaza surrounded by the Basilica,the Cathedral,shops and restaurants,and includes a fountain. We were here during Fallas and watched the start of the parade from here. It was able to hold hundreds of visitors and while it was busy, you still were ably to walk freely around. Great place for a coffee or meal and to catch the... More

Pretty square in the center of Valencia, perfect to have a seat, catch some sunshine and and watch the world go by. It is always busy and full of people. There are many attractions in the vicinity as well, such as Valencia Cathedral and the Central Market.

During Las Fallas this square is simply stuffed with flowers. You can get there by sense of smell alone! Awesome inspiring floral decorations are kept in the square near to the church.

Like most of Valencia, Plaza de la Virgen is unusual and well worth a visit. I was fortunate to be staying nearby and strolled through every morning

I enjoyed the peace and quiet of this place first thing in the morning. The sun reflecting on the various bell towers etc made for some (potentially!) great photos and the absence of people and stalls meant I could appreciate the buildings undisturbed. During the day it is very touristy which is fun in different ways.

Beautiful place with lots of cafes with solid service around, beautiful just to sit down at in the evening and enjoy a sangria. Prices areound the palce are a bit higher than elsewhere but worth the money if you are on holidays. Otherwise there is a Carefur store just a few blocs away and you can always buy drinks and...
