María Pita Square

The square where the Town Hall is situated owes its name to a local heroine, Maria Píta, who saved the city in 1589, sounding the alarm when the English, led by Francis Drake, scaled the walls. Enclosed on three sides by buildings with glass-covered galleries and arcades typical of Corunna, the María Pita Square is closed to traffic and has many terraces.
