Plaza del Coso
The Plaza del Coso is an urban plaza in the locality of Peñafiel (Valladolid, Spain). During the year it serves as a bullring during the Festival of San Roque in August, and provides a place for the Descent of the Angel Festival, on Resurrection Sunday. The square has been documented as existing since the Middle Ages. The square is surrounded by 48 buildings. The balconies of the plaza are lintelled, and were built between the 18th and 19th centuries. The blaconies are made from wood, and decorated with arabesque. The balconies have been used since their creation to watch the shows. (excerpts from Wikipedia)
