For this reason, it is very unlikely that a visitor will not end up in this place.

Events such as the well-known autos de fe of the Holy Inquisition were held here, and to this day it is still a very important place. Besides, it is one of the main transit points for the Corpus Christi and Holy Week processions, and from this point you can enjoy spectacular views of the Giralda.
