What began as a modest space in the Middle Ages ended up as the Site of Cultural Interest you can see today.
Red and white squares.
A boulevard of red and white tiles flanked by benches will lead you to the Alameda Cristina Square which dates back to the Middle Ages. At that time it was just a plot on the outskirts of the city, near the Jewish Quarter, where locals organised bullfights and medieval tournaments, consisting of horse riders throwing clay pots filled with ash or flowers to each other. Over time, this space became a noble area, commanded by the now-obsolete Santo Domingo Convent. Here you could also find the San Sebastian Chapel and the hospital until the 19th century when they disappeared and were replaced by the Alameda Cristina Square. It is very near the Marquis of Montana Palace, so is also protected as a Site of Cultural Interest.
