Also known as the square of the Flowers, it is one of the most iconic squares in Granada: it has hosted all kinds of events, from celebrations in Arab times, to bullfights or even executions in the time of the Inquisition after the Conquest.
With a history as extensive as it is versatile - it has undergone several transformations throughout its existence - it is today one of the most important squares in the festive life of Granada, as it celebrates the Day of the Cross or the iconic Corpus Christi, and at Christmas, it is the centre of the Christmas market and the exhibition of cribs.
With a labyrinthine configuration between souks and intricate streets, its birth dates back to the time of the Nasrids, being originally one of the commercial centres and strategic centre of Granada. From Muslims to Christians, this square has undergone a series of profound transformations and even fires, from which it has managed to survive.
Thus, this square has witnessed the birth of the city of Granada, and even today remains one of the social centres of the city.
