A cozy and very small plaza just around the corner from the cathedral. Nice restaurants and little bars serving tequila, mezcal and all kinds of cocktails.

I think it's really more accurate .to call this space Parque San Francisco, given that it's lawn and trees. Unusually large number of churches right there. Tranquil. Beware of lumpy lawn; I nearly lost an ankle to jt, and definitely lost my dignity! Museo Regional...More

Very nice square in old downtown. There is a small garden, a fountain, some nice old buildings (colonial and baroque) and a beautiful catholic church (Templo de San Francisco) well worth the time if only for the architecture and the detailed religious statues and paintings...More
