Had a very good explaination from our guide about what happened at this plaza. Very moving, hard to imagine. I was impacted by this part of our tour and I am glad we were able to freely take pictures and remember it.

With its iconic, old-Europe streets and alleys, this
picturesque neighbourhood is the very heart of

under Roman dominion up through the Spanish Civil War
with a vibrant modern-day culture of artisan shops and
authentic culinary experiences. Avid explorers will be
thrilled to discover quaint terraces and plazas
brought to life by the many small bars and local
