Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

La Plaza Mayor de Graus, está abierta en todo su perímetro por diferentes galerías de soportales, unos adintelados y otros con arcos de distintas estructuras, como es la de medio punto o la de ojiva, a partir de los cuales se desarrollan las fachadas de los edificios de la plaza.

El inmueble dominante de la plaza, es el Ayuntamiento, una obra del siglo XVI, de características estilísticas del mudéjar aragonés. Al lado del Consistorio se eleva Casa Palacio Heredia, se trata de un palacio renacentista con una fachada policromada y alero igualmente con pinturas que narran la parábola del Hijo Pródigo.

Otra de las casas, que merece especial mención, y que ocupa la parte central de la foto es la Casa Palacio del Barón, de estilo neoclásico, con fachada que tiene pinturas alegóricas de las ciencias y las letras. Y enfrente de la misma se alza la Casa Palacio Bardaxí, del siglo XVII, con apenas detalles decorativos.


The Graus main square, is open around the whole perimeter to arcades with different colonnades, some with lintels and others with arches of different types like the horseshoe arch or the ogee arch above which rise the facades of the buildings surrounding the square.

The predominant building of the square is the Town Hall, dating from the 16th century in the style characteristic of Aragonese mudejar. Alongside the Town Hall rises the Heredia Palace House, a Renaissance palace with a polychrome facade and eaves, it has paintings that narrate the parable of the Prodigal Son.

Another of the houses that merit special attention is that of the Barón Palace House, located at the center of the image, of neoclassic style with a facade that has alegorical paintings of the sciences and letters. Across from it is the Bardaxí Palace House from the 17th century which has few decorative details.
