Leon's Plaza Mayor by vribeiro

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…


León’s Plaza Mayor, or main square, has the charm and stately bearing of other Plazas Mayores in Spain. It was built in two stages, the first ending in 1672 to plans by Father Antonio Ambrosio and the second ending in 1677, with plans by Franciso del Piñal. The slightly trapezoidal square was built after several blocks of the old city were razed by fire. One of León’s typical meeting places, it is still used by farmers and traders, as it was centuries ago, to hold their recently reinstated twice-weekly market there.
