There is a Chocolate shop and museum along one side of this plaza. They give tours and let you make your own chocolates with different ingredients. It is a wonderful place with excellent staff and delicious chocolate.

So many squares and lots of statures abound. We found this one and were looking for a restaurant, but had to back track to find one that looked worthwhile.

Nothing particularly special to commend this plaza more than the many others inside the walled city. Includes the usual array of vendors, spectators, bars and restaurants. Perfectly fine but not particularly special.
