"Plaza de Tetuan" BARCELONA, Spain

Plaza Tetuan is a plaza located on Passeig de Sant Joan and the Avinguda de les Corts Catalanes and lies in northwest direction to the Arc de de Triomf in Barcelona, Spain.

The name "Tetuán" origins from the Berber word Tiṭwān and means "the eyes" or "the origins", and if you have a look to the satellite view on the map, you will see that the plaza really looks like an eye. T

The place is like a small oasis in between these two huge streets with lots of plants.
Close to here you will find the Arc de Triomf and Parc de la Ciutadella.

"Calle Tetuan" SEVILLA, Spain
-Tetuan street-

Everyone knows about Calle Sierpes, but the parallel street of Tetuan is my personal fav. It takes you straight from the Plaza Nueva to the Plaza del Duque (where there's a Corte Ingles). You can find anything and everything at el Corte Ingles, but if you're looking for better prices try the streets of Seville. There are 3 giant Zara stores on Calle Tetuan where you'll find the same clothes as here in expensive Zara Int'l stores for about 1/3 the price. For an even better bargain head over to Triana where you'll find street vendors selling everything like 2 and 3 burnt CDs for only 1000 pta (about $6 US). If you're looking for the greatest CD collection head to Sevilla Rock by la Plaza del Duque. Or if you're in a mall mood, head over to Nervion Plaza. Happy shopping!! source

"Plaza Tetuan" VALENCIA, Spain


Plaza Tetuan is one of those places in Valencia that just happen to be a cluster of things to see with nothing in common between those.

Convento de Santo Domingo is a large, atmospheric monasterial complex that will remind you of the Imperial days. A mixture of Gothic, Renaissance and Neo-classical, it dates from as far back as 14th century.

Right opposite it is Palacio de Cervello. Although not particularly anything special visually, it is a very important building in Valencia - used as a royal residence during the 19th century, Those rooms have seen hugely historic events and are currently housing a museum on the topic (also lets you see the refurbished interior).

A few meters down is the small park of Glorieta where you can soak up the Spanish afternoon among some very curious trees. As you walk towards there, note the high bank building on your right, it is unbelievable.

On the other side of the Glorieta you can see the Puerta del Mar - a kind of Valencian Triumphal Arch, with the full symbolism and insignia of Valencia. These gates used to be part of the city walls, much like Torres de Serranos or Quart, but they were moved, stone-by-stone.

The roundabout of Puerta del Mar also holds the Palacio de Justicia (Court), a neo-classical building of 18th century worth a quick look.

Also within a few metres of Plaza Tetuan in a slightly different direction is the Chapel of San Vicente Ferrer. source

Almost every street/district takes the Tetuan name because of a batle in XX century (the monumentes, etc.)
Madrid Tetuan district is called like that because the warriors after that war created a camp there
