One side you will always find city hall or what used to be and on the other side Catholic Church or a Cathedral depending on the sizes. Plaza wassss a long time ago the... More

The plaza really is something to see. A stunning cathedral is the highlight (which we attended a very nice Mass in). The painted lions all over are very, very cool. The fire station is pretty neat and it serves as the location to hop on the trolley. To top it off, the awesome, AWESOME Kings Cream is right there, serving... More
