A place to relax and contemplate the every day life of the city.
To watch time pass by
Some people find this square by chance after visiting the impressive religious complex after which it is named, but the attraction of the Plaza San Francisco is not just its monuments, it is much more than that. It is a place that is full of life, very crowded on every day of the week, but particularly busy on Saturdays and Sundays. People of all ages come here, whole families come here to enjoy a lazy afternoon with no other plan than to spend a few pleasant hours in the open air: walking, enjoying the privileged surroundings, feeding the multitude of pigeons who are keen to make friends and, in short, enjoying a relaxing day. It’s hard to beat this square as a place to savour a delicious cholado or candy floss; or to contemplate the daily life of the locals as they carry out their daily tasks. If you want to feel like just another local, this is the place for you.
