Overview

Located at the gateway to the historic quarter, this square marked the northern limit of the city up until the early 20th Century. It has a simple but pretty church that was founded in the 16th Century for the use of the indigenous people, and was rebuilt in the 18th Century. On one of its sides there was an old Catholic graveyard, again just for indigenous people. There are always several interesting personalities in the square, who can tell you the history of its origins, and of the area in general. In the vicinity there are various small stores and local medical centers.
