Plaza Vieja (plaza de la Constitución)

This pleasant square with arcades is dominated by the town hall. It already existed under Arab rule, with its administrative buildings and bazars, but only took on its current form in the 19C. The central column pays respect to the "pinguruchos de los coloraos", liberals who died in their fight against despotism in 1824.
