Summary

Alongside the Old Town Hall is Plegaria Street leading to Church of St. Martín whose current image is the upshot of different remodelling work in the 12th, 14th and, in particular, 18th centuries, on the original Romanesque temple from the 11th century. Worthy of note in its structure are the Gothic apse and the odd chapel of the Ánimas, backing onto the temple. Following the rout via Platerías, Cardiles and La Paloma, the medieval layout of narrow streets in the old town opens up onto the spacious Ancha street, one of the prime, oldest thoroughfares in the city which leads between guards and all kinds of businesses to the cathedral square.
