    The Corral de Comedias is the only 17th century theatre that retains its original structure.

    Corral, in this case, means a yard surrounded by private houses and it is still used for dramatic performances (old Spanish comedies from the Golden Age of Spanish literature and other countries).

    Iglesia de San Agustìn

    by gmg61 Written Nov 16, 2008

    This church is not a masterpiece, but with its red brick walls stands strongly just at the side of the green and white façades of Plaza Mayor and makes a strong contrast with them.

    In the church the are interesting baroque frescoes.

    Plaza Mayor

    by gmg61 Written Nov 15, 2008

    This is a unique kind of square in Spain, completely different from the many others main squares you can find throughout the country and the reason is that the project was drawn by German architects at the times of Carlos V.
    Rectangular shaped, open at one end, where a small park stand, and closed on the opposite side by the building of the ayiuntamiento, it's closed on the longest sides by two rows of buildings with green roofs and windows, held by Tuscan columns. Only two alley depart from the square: the Callejon del Toril, white and flanked by some small shops, and - opposite - the Callejon del Villar, a cul de sac with a nice view over the square.
