  • A lovely place to sit and relax after visiting the Cathedral. Interesting statues of dogs at the steps but not sure why they are there. Popular with the locals. 
  • Very pleasant square with the Cathedral and the Town Hall, served as a model for the plaza main or largest in the Spanish colonial cities in America. Must-see in the capital!

  • This place is located right on the Katetrale and invites to linger and make photos. You speak Spanish? Then you will hear even in what for a melidodischem dialect the locals talk. This is a place to relax after tiring sightseeing.
