A couple of weeks ago, I shared photos of Plaza de Armas with its old government buildings and new book stalls. From there, we walked to the Plaza de la Catedral, featuring the Catedral de San Cristóbal, an 18th century church. The Christopher in the name is Christopher Columbus whose remains, according to legend, once rested here.
The Plaza is surrounded by grand 18th century homes, now mostly housing museums and galleries.
