  • plaza de Santa Cruz is very beautiful and peaceful place, surrounded by beautiful buildings and the city's Cathedral. If you go with children is a perfect place for that is feeding the pigeons distracting.

  • A very beautiful place and the crowd of people is great and keeps entertained. But there is no place outdoors in the square to eat and take quiet table.

  • On one side of the square is the Cathedral of Santa Cruz, at Christmas time they decorate it very pretty, there is one Lords uniformed with a few white bags and hats, that sell hot drinks, which makes it even more picturesque. I recommend to go early, since about 19-20 closed the businesses nearby, and the feeling that is not very safe are vie at that time

  • The main place to start visiting the city. Only extreme bad weather will empty it... always with visitors and locals enjoying the pleasant weather, even at early hours of the morning. Coffee runs around in little carts for sale to amenize conversations and just to take a minute in the simple pleasures of life, like friendship and a good company. Locals meet regularly and some take the challenge of a chess game, others find their spot to refresh from the heat of the day, but all soak in the warmth welcome that this city has for everybody.
  • It's the central plaza, right in the middle of Santa Cruz. It's always well maintained and with all the trees a great place to sit and relax, especially in the middle of the day when some of the stores are closed during the Siesta time.
  • Beautiful place. One of the most picturesque plazas I have ever been at.
  • Did not get a chance to go inside the brick cathedral, but saw it from the outside; the plaza (main square) a beautiful well kept (clean) town gathering square, there are some small shops around and near the town square, towns people were gathered with their elders and young this past Sunday afternoon; the plaza is adorned with Christmas trees at its four corners and its passageways are light up with clear Christmas lights.
  • It's beautiful to see old traditions still treasured
