This square got its name from a font which was built in 1577. This fountain is topped by a filly, so the folks henceforth named the square as “square of the filly”.

It is one of the more significant sites in town, because the old Potro Inn (Posada del Potro) is situated there. The Potro Inn was already mentioned in Miguel de Cervantes’ “Don Quixote”.

Plaza de los Capuchinos

Visitor guides usually indicate this square one of the most impressive in town. In fact, it is probably one of the smallest ones. Anyway, this site is more remote and therefore not crowded by tourists. The square is home to a beautiful Christ statue which is surrounded by several lanterns. The site is most enchanting at nightfall when the lanterns are illuminated.

Plaza Jerónimo Páez

Once, this square was home to the third largest amphitheater of the Roman empire. Its excavated remains were integrated into the construction of the Museum of Archaeology which is located here. On the square itself, a number of findings are on display, including fragments of ancient Roman columns.
