This is a beautiful small plaza with the Crucifix, it is a nice find and if you are Christian it is a blessing along the way of your visit through this marvelous city.

I went at night and found it to be quite peaceful and humbling. Best to go as a couple or group. Light a candle and reflect.

This is rather an alley than a plaza but in the middle there is this interesting cross with a church opposite to it.
