“Beautiful Square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

The Plaza de Santa Ana is a beautiful square that has the Cathedral, the Bishop's Palace, the old City Hall, and several beautiful buildings. What called our attention were sculptures of 8 dogs near the Cathedral. The sculptor was Alfred Jacquemart, who was French, and they were put in the plaza in 1895. Children love to play with the dogs.
