Stroll around or take a guided tour of Plaza Mayor, a vibrant plaza with an extensive (and bloody) past. Used in its early days as a military planning hub, during World War I the square was a site of public executions of prisoners. Having seen a number of wars and changing hands between the Spanish and Portuguese, this central plaza has been impeccably maintained and today makes a picturesque, pleasant place to spend time. Go more in depth with a guided tour.
