This is the Plaza Mayor, about a 100' from our hotel room. Apparently it was the site of lots of executions and torture during the Inquisition and various other times. The day after this shot was taken they roped off most of the center and started constructing a stage for an opera performance the following Sunday. The staging was at least 3 stories tall the last we saw it.
This is a view out one of the arches in the direction of our hotel
