Tucked away at the end of a small alley we happened to stumble upon this tiny square with its small church and beautiful statue of St Francis of Assisi. Such a quiet contrast only a few minutes away from the cacophony of the shopping area!

Set in the central court this little church is well worth a look, it is beautiful on the inside. It is best to have a look in at the quieter times as it gets very busy.
