Ávila Plaza Mayor

star-4.5
160 Reviews

One of vila’s most picturesque spots is its Plaza Mayor. Long one of the city’s central meeting points, the square’s formation dates back to around the 11th century when the city was growing. The square is more commonly known as the Plaza del Mercado Chico, or The Small Market Square — and is indeed home to a weekly fruit and vegetable market.

Also home to City Hall with its grand 19th-century façade, the expansive main square is noted for its portico-lined perimeter, along which you’ll find the storefronts of various shops and food establishments. Come here to snack on some tapas at one of the plaza’s restaurants, or to make a bakery stop to sample the city’s signature sweet, theyema de Ávila, an egg yolk-based sugar ball that tastes yummier than it sounds.
