La Plaza de la Independencia is located at the heart of the historic quarter of the city. It was from this around this square that the city was planned in 1535. Facing the square are the Palacio de Gobierno, the Cathedral, the Municipalidad, the Palacio Arzobispal and the Casa del Alcalde. This square is a vital hub of the city. Demonstrations, marches and general protests against the government always converge here. Thousands of Ecuadorians and tourists alike pass through this square every day and it is a must for the latter, as it is an interesting place and historically very important.
