This Square is coetaneous to the development of the adjacent Paseo de Pereda and was built in the same architectural style. The north side of the Square is lined with eye-catching arcaded buildings and the whole area is presided by the palacial building of Juan Pombo (hence the name of the square), which nowadays hosts the oldest nautic club in the city (Club de Regatas).
Although the square is popularly known by its traditional name of Plaza de Pombo, it is *still* officially named after José Antonio Primo de Rivera, founder of the single party under the fascist dictatorship.
This is one of the favorite places for Santanderinos to go out, as the nightlife area of Cañadío is close by and there are a number of cafés and tapas bars in the surroundings. However, it is not a place for relaxed conversation, as it is popular with families bringing their children.
