Text : In older times known as the plaza de las Gallinas (chicken’s square) due to the poultry market here celebrated. The square has its current name in honor of the admiral Méndez Núñez, who had his house here, and died in 1869. The house was, by the end of the 19th century, center of important and crowded gatherings of poets and writers, among others, Valle-Inclán. Today, there is a statue of the famous writer in the square. The Praza Méndez Núñez, together with other squares like the la Plaza de la Leña, the Plaza de la Herrería, or the Plaza de la Verdura, form the most lively areas of the city.
