Overview map
Plaza Vieja (Old Square) as such was presumably laid in 1586, however the development of exclusively residential buildings first began a century later.

Beginning in 1952, the upper part of a underground garage disfigured the square. In 1995, it was torn down in the course of the extensive restoration work so that a fountain could once again be built on its original location in the middle of Plaza Vieja.
