Plaza de la Corredera

The Plaza de la Corredera is of trapezoidal and irregular shaped-square. Its current shape was likely consolidated well into the Modern Age. It took on its final appearance with the general development of the population in the mid-18th century. The square can also be considered as the Plaza Nueva in Arahal, as opposed to the Plaza Vieja. This is an element that has been researched in other towns, such as Utrera and Marchena, which have similar characteristics, as regards the conservation of two squares with different chronologies.

Two of its façades are in a bad state of repair. They were replaced with buildings from the 1960s and 1970s. Nevertheless, several houses adjacent to the Town Hall have preserved their original layout: three-storey building and a façade with balconies for public events, typical of other main squares. This model, which is common in other La Campiña towns, does have some unique features, such as winged cornices, which illustrate the skill and creativity of the local master builders of that time.
