This is the bustling area of the city. A great place to "people watch" and feel like you're a part of the culture for a bit. We visited the Plaza during the day and enjoyed all of the history as well as local shops in the area. But what really impressed us was the Plaza at night. The way the Cathedral is lit up makes you want to whisper. (Like you're in the presence of something bigger than you.) I know that sounds silly, but take my advice and go back to the Plaza once it gets dark. You won't regret it!
