With a fountain and the entrance to the cathedral. The building opposite the church with the red door is actually a facade...not a real building!

Smaller than the others, this plaza is lively and opens on small streets and one large avenue with cafes and bars along the sidewalks.

It is a an average town fountain, but the importance resides in the fact that long time ago was the water spot for the horses rode by the peregrinos.
