Beautiful large square lined with restaurants and shops, great spot to stop for a snack or meal and watch the world going by! On weekends, is bustling with action and events.

The plaza has the statue of Saint Teresa in front of the church and this statue is quite beautiful. There is a bookstore at one end and there are restrooms there, but one has to ask the owner of the bookstore to open the restrooms.
