Plaza De Espana is a historic plaza that runs in front of Don Diego Columbus's former residence, as well as numerous shops and restaurants. The plaza is bordered by what were once the ramparts that walled the city in.


Located in Zona Colonial, Plaza De Espana welcomes local customers and visitors who are lodging in this neighborhood or the surrounding area. Even if you aren't staying particularly close, you are free to stop by for some fun in the sun.

If you walked up Isabel la Catolica from the Condle for three blocks and make a right you will be in the plaza.
