The Central Squares
The plazas or squares in Spain are often tree-lined, with gloriously cool shaded spots to escape the intense summer sun. They are normally ringed with various lanes, access points and obscure roads, leading out onto different courtyards, and in some cases, even more pretty plazas or squares. The journey begins at the Plaza del ayuntamiento, followed by the Plaza de la Reina and, at the end the Plaza de la Virgen where you can find the Cathedral.

The cathedral is a lovely old place and well worth visiting. You can actually climb to the top of the Miguelete bell tower and admire great views of the city. Inside the cathedral, the Holy Grail (the actual cup that Jesus drank from at the last supper) is one of the must-see attractions for those of a religious following.

Not only is it a great modernist building to admire, it is also somewhere where visitors get a closer insight into the daily life. There are some really interesting stalls here: some of the fruit and vegetables may look strange to visitors, and so may some of the traditional meat products which are still popular here. Even if you get bored, there are loads of traditional shops, bars and cafes around the perimetre of the building. It is a really nice area to stroll around.
