Main Square (Yecla - Murcia)

Main Square (Yecla)

This group of old buildings includes the Palace of the Council (where today the Town Hall is located), built between the 16th and 17th centuries; the Old Farmhouse Building, corresponding to the 16th century; the Los Alarcos Palace (one of the most important families in the city during the 16th century, which still shows the original coat of arms), founded between the 16th and 17th centuries; and the old market and Clock Tower, which are from the 19th century.

The centre of the square is a large open space where Yecla’s people gather. It is interesting to observe the Clock Tower, which serves to unite the old porticoed building and the old market.

Originally, the tower functioned as the bell tower of a hermitage, whose nave was where the old market was later installed. Already in the 19th century, the tower took its current appearance, being essential to complete the architectural complex surrounding the unique Main Square of Yecla.
