Colourful flowers of every variety fill the market stalls in the Plaza Bib-Rambla in the city of Granada. Located at the foot of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, Granada is also the capital of the province Granada in Andalusia, Spain.

Not only does it contain a market, but is also bustling with restaurants, a large decorative fountain in the centre with giants on it, and is where many people come to meet with friends of buy their food and drink.

... Most of them were put to death. Some of the people were even burnt in the Plaza Bib-Rambla, right after their trial was over.

The name 'Bib-Rambla' means 'Gate of the River' as this square used to border a river. The square has changed a lot over time, with added buildings, changing architecture, and of course, the river no longer exists along its edge.
