PLAZA MAYOR: Located next to Calle Mayor, it is within the tradition of Spanish main squares. The file of declaration of Historic Artistic Complex was initiated in 1977. Originally it was an open space that served as a meeting place for the Municipal Council, until in 1560 it decided to build in the north corner of the Plaza de «Almudí», or place intended for the collection of the wheat from the Posito, simultaneously moving the municipal sessions to the so-called “Casas del Tesoro” in the Plaza de Santiago. The importance of the Plaza Mayor in the urban life of Villena is indisputable, as well as its specialization as a public center, representing a more than worthy setting for parties and collective participation ceremonies.
