Maria Pita square, A Coruna, Galicia, Spain

The Maria Pita square is in A Coruna. It’s the main square of the city and it has the name of the town’s heroine, Maria Pita (a kind of Jeanne D’Arc for the people of the city). The square seems a Royal court with a main entrance, the Town Hall and Council building. This building is only a little more than a hundred years. There are other buildings not as grandiose as this one but with a very good architecture typical of the village using granite as its most important component; some of them have galerias. The buildings are interconnected or very close the one to the another so they enclose the square. The facades of the buidings are very attractive. We can also find a statue of Maria Pita, bars, cafes, restaurants and also a tourist information point.


If you visit the place, check for the activities beacause there are usually concerts in the square.

You can also make a pause and have a good coffee or eat something at one of the restaurants or cafes there.

If you want to walk outside of the square, go out on the left of the Cuncil building and you can see St. George’s church (18th century).
