We will start the walk in the heart of the city where we will find the Burgas, the famous hot springs that have existed since ancient Roman times. We will enter the heart of the city to appreciate the Plaza Mayor. This wide and bright square is one of the few largest squares in Europe that has a slightly sloping floor and is also surrounded by the main monuments of the city.

Our guide in English will show us the majestic Episcopal Palace built in the 12th century and the medieval Iglesia Santa María Madre, whose façade preserves signs of having been part of the old cathedral of the city.
