The Square Redonda
The square Redonda is an old flea market in Valencia that was created in the 19th century by the architect Salvador Escrig. This space has this name because the establishments are located around a fountain, forming a circle through which passers-by could access the shops. In the past, this place was a meeting point for hundreds of people at weekends. The stalls sold fresh, just-picked produce such as fruit, vegetables and fish.
Nowadays, the centenary square has changed its commercial activity and no longer sells perishable goods, but the shops that are part of the square Redonda sell mainly souvenirs and typical products of the city.
To see this square, which is so significant in Valencian culture and has been declared an asset of Cultural Relevance, you have to take bus number 4, Poeta Querol, which is a minute’s walk from the Original Domino House and get off at the seventh stop, Marqués de Dosaigües, and then walk for 3 minutes.
