City Square

Interesting
This quiet pedestrian square is presided over by the statue of Álvaro de Bazán, hero of the battle of Lepanto in 1571, as seen by Mariano Benlliure. Around it are several interesting buildings: the town hall (Ayuntamiento) built in 1617 by Gomez de Mora and the Lujan Tower, a rare example of 15C Mudéjar architecture where the King of France, François I, was imprisoned after the Battle of Pavia and the Cisneros House.
