  • The only thing that differs this square of the other are the "ruins" of the Governor's House (which actually has nothing of ruins has only some beams on the floor that give to understand that there was a house)

  • Is the "door" of the old Colony. The remains of foundations give us clues on how was the old urban conurbation almost centuries ago. As far as possible, for open-air structures are well preserved and have, some stitches, how to watch all the set. Right next to the Basilica of the Blessed Sacrament, another landmark of the city. Is a good place to choose a seat and rest a bit of hiking. Enjoy the surroundings, study the map and go to the next discovery.

  • The Plaza de Armas is quite simple, the archaeological remains of the ancient foundations of the residence of the Portuguese Governor and some bars around ideal for a drink at sunset are.
