Description

The A Magdalena district is a clear example of the rational city planning that took place during the Enlightenment. It has a rectangular shape, with six parallel streets divided by nine shorter perpendicular cross streets. The district has a grid structure and is divided into similar shape and size blocks. There are two large squares located at each end of the district> the Plaza de Amboage (Plaze de Marqués de Amboage) and the Plaza de Armas. 18th Century houses, with wrought iron balconies supported on stone corbels and white wooden window galleries (most of them from the 19th Century) can still be found in the district, as well as the modernist-style buildings where the galleries are the main decorative feature.
In 1983, the A Magdalena district was declared an area of historical and artistic interest.
