Constructed in the early 1800’s, San Sebastian’s main square, the the Plaza de la Constitución, plays host to the city’s major events, including feasts of saints, important festivals and other celebrations.

At one point the square even served as the city’s bullring.

Rented out as box seats when the plaza used to be a bullring, the balcony doors still carry the box numbers above them, thereby preserving a part of the square’s interesting history.

The bright yellow and blue balcony doors are quite striking and the bold black numbers above each door really stand out, immediately catching your eye when you first enter the plaza.
