Just stunningly beautiful! The cathedral is the foundation but the buildings around the square are equally impressive. Lots of food options too and great for photos and people watching.

We visited during the day and went inside the Cathedral and up the bell tower. From there you get a great view of the square and the higher up you go great views of the city and across.

This little plaza is something history lovers will enjoy with the beautful view of the cathedral.And if you get tired there are some restaurants to eat also.Cathedral is not as nice as the old european medieval cathedrals inside.

Lovely place to be. The Cathedral de San Cristobel is lovely and the square has a lovely peaceful atmosphere. There are shops and museums in this area.

A must visit. Try and go to the top of the church where you can get great views. The actual church is stunning
