A quaint plaza in Santiago de Compostela’s Casco Histórico (historic centre), Praza de Cervantes boasts of fine Romanesque architecture which can be seen in the old-fashioned buildings, cobblestone grounds and the antiquated fountain situated at the center of the plaza. Buildings around this plaza are not more than five storeys high, and feature stone and marble walls, sturdy pillars and elongated windows with intricately-designed balconies. These buildings house hotel rooms, residential accommodations and some offices. The ground levels are occupied by small shops and cafés.A small Catholic church, the Igrexa de San Bieito do Campo, stands on one end of the plaza, and showcases Romanesque architecture with thick stone walls, a high ceiling and symmetrical features. Praza de Cervantes is also situated near the Catedral de Santiago de Compostela, a massive and popular cathedral with elaborately carved stone façades, and which is frequented by thousands of pilgrims each year.Praza de Cervantes offers spacious grounds, and cafés with outdoor seating areas where people can enjoy some refreshments while taking in the scenic view and peaceful atmosphere. Residents from surrounding streets with narrow cobblestone alleys would also find the plaza to be an ideal place to stretch their legs or ride their bicycles, and pursue an active lifestyle.
