The street San Vicente Mártir is the longest in the city. It begins in Plaza de la Reina and ends at the Cruz Cubierta. In its route three different parts can be observed: the historical center, with monumental buildings and echoes of the old medieval layout, the commercial city, the result of the development of the bourgeoisie in the XIX Century, and the industrial city, with the features of the working class neighborhoods.

The street was named after one of the most emblematic characters of the city and its current patron saint, Vicente de Zaragoza, well-known also as San Vicente Mártir. The deacon was captured and tortured by orders of the roman governor Diocletian, which is the reason why the catholic church venerates him as a martyr.
