The Konstituzioko plaza or Plaza de la Constitución is a square in the Alde Zaharra (Parte Vieja) that follows the standard plan of any Plaza Mayor. It is a wide square ringed by buildings that provide a seamless arcade all along the sides of the square. During the day and night it is generally filled with cafes and buskers, much like Plazas Mayores in other cities. The one difference from, say, Madrid, is that this square is far from being the centre of traditional social life in the city. It is true, there are various events held here during the Aste Nagusia, but the sea and the bay are just too beautiful to leave them out of the city?s nightlife, while those who prefer bars and good food seem to be drawn to the smaller streets of the Alde Zaharra and their numerous establishments.
