Take a breather in the midst of a historical and cultural center surrounded by colonial-era architecture at Cathedral Square. Accompanied by the calming sound of running water coming from the central fountain, take a seat on one of the square's benches and observe the people, churches, and palaces surrounding you. If you do some exploring, look for two additional fountains surrounded by 19th-century tiled murals created by artist George Chinnery. Pick up a few souvenirs at the square or purchase refreshments at nearby cafes and restaurants while enjoying the ambience.

    It is located beside the Cathedral square. Attracted by the draw the pattern, there is a fountain in the middle. Tourists and locals had a leisurely, and benches surrounding it. Buildings around the Cathedral, lit at night, guests can also enjoy the atmosphere.

    An impressive stone cross and diagonally across from the Cathedral (Cathedral), the Fountain Square. Beautiful Flagstone pattern painted in black and white, there are benches, but not crowded as it was.
