Apart from the church, you can visit the Martha Jimenez studio workshop, have some food or drinks in one the restaurants nearby or simply sit down in a bench to have some rest while looking at the bronze statues located all around the square.

This small plaza was apparently restored a few years ago. Now the highlight for me was the several lifestyle bronze sculptures of people sitting around doing normal activities. The sculptress was Marta Jimenez, whose studio is just off the plaza and well worth the visit.
