Plaza de la Cathedral
Located on Calle Cristo , the Plaza derives its name from the Cathedral located at its north end. Originally the Plaza extended from the cathedral to the San Juan Gate. Its history is closely tied with that of the Cathedral and the Convent. In the second half of the 19th century, the Plaza was paved, and in the 1980s it was fully restored. Near the Plaza you can find the Hotel El Convento , a selection of restaurants, stores and museums.
