Historic Buildings in the Plaza

The plaza is full of Historic buildings and is in the center of the historical part of Valencia so it a great place for the student of Architecture to understand the peak of traditional Spanish style.  Combined with the modern developments in other parts of the city Valencia provides a one-shop introduction to architectural styles.

Overarching all the other buildings is of course the Town Hall building which gives it's name to the plaza.  Plaza Del Ayuntamiento really means "Town Hall Square" and indeed there are as many town hall squares in Spain and Spanish speaking parts of the world as there are town halls in squares!  Yet Plaza Del Ayuntamiento has come to mean the Plaza in Valencia.
