Built in the 18th century this square is lined by a number of wonderful little buildings painted in various pastel shades, these include the 1728 Inglesia de San Juan de Dios and the Hospital de San Juan de Dios on the northern side of the square.
A small souvenir stall sits in the corner of the square, but the square is practically abandoned, no tourists seem to come here, probably because they can't find it and the only people I meet are a young boy and an old woman eager to practice their English.
It is sitting here in this square that I find myself easily able to drift back to colonial times and imagine what life must have been like in the city then, but the effect is somewhat ruined by the distant sound of a radio blaring "Who Let The Dogs Out" through the air.
If the city has one must see attraction, the delightful jugs aside obviously, this is it and, if you can find it, it should not be missed.
