Constitution Square (Oviedo)

Constitution Square (Oviedo)


In addition to Cathedral Square, Constitution Square is considered one of the most central and important squares in Oviedo, as around it are important places of interest such as the Church of Saint Isidore the Royal and administrative offices such as the City Hall.

Before its construction in 1659, the site where the square is located was an important crossroads within the Old Town area of Oviedo. That is why architect Marcos Velasco Agüero designed it so that it provided a natural flow for both carriages and pedestrians. In addition, it is part of the Way of St. James Route that crosses Oviedo.

One of the most interesting details about this square is its curious name, which has frequently changed—e.g., City Square, Royal Square and even Republic Square—according to the political ups and downs of the historical moment.

After the bloody Spanish Civil War, the square underwent a profound renovation that also affected the Town Hall and other buildings around it.

Currently, Constitution Square is one of the most attractive and popular places in Oviedo, due not only to the fact that it is located in a strategic central point but also because several cafes, bars and restaurants converge around it. There, tourists can enjoy a nice drink and good food, as well as commercial premises and shops.
