Designed by Salvador Escrig in 1840, the Plaza Redonda in Valencia is one of the tourist attractions of the city due to its particular construction. In its design it is conceived with a great mercantile sense, with its characteristic circular shape.
In 2012 it was completely rehabilitated and remodeled, including the roof and market stalls. Now, there are ceramic shops, traditional craft shops, haberdashery, clothing, souvenirs, and bars and restaurants. You can also find small stalls with lace, fabric, embroidery or different souvenirs from Valencia.
In the middle of the square is a characteristic fountain that will allow us to observe, from a different perspective, the tower of Santa Catalina and its undeniable Rococo style. If you look closely, on the ground, next to the fountain, you can read a quote from the writer Vicente Blasco Ibáñez, who was Valencian, and who in his work “Rice and Tartana” referred to the Plaza Redonda in Valencia.
To get to the Plaza Redonda you can do it from any of the four streets that will lead to it.
