Neighborhood: Las Palmas
Overview

This square is right in the center of Las Palmas. Surrounded by important religious, municipal and judicial buildings and of great ideological importance, its style was copied for similar squares all over Latin America. Its political significance reached its peak in the mid-19th century, when a number of demonstrations in favor of provincial division were held here. Although its construction dates back to the beginning of the 16th century, it's now as it was in the 19th century, thanks to various improvements to restore paving stones, the four entrances, and the perimeter, with stone parapets and iron railings. The bronze dogs at the main entrance are famous. For more information, contact City Hall at the above number.
