Houses in Plaza Mayor
Almost all houses in Plaza Mayor are built in a similar style. They have red terracotta tiled roofs that are supported by wooden beams. The rest of the houses are painted in light, soft pastel shades that complement the tiles perfectly. The doors of the houses are large and have a small entrance in them. Windows of these houses do not have a glass but instead have small wooden columns installed on them; arched windows are also built in most of these houses.
