It is the most important of the historic center and one of the most visited of all the city and it was here that the city was founded. During all the republican times the square has become one of the most emblematic places. Streets Orbegoso, Independencia, Almagro and Pizarro are the four streets that limit this square. Very near we have the Compañia de Jesus church which has paintings of Diego de la Puente. Santo Domingo church is the only temple with twin towers which has a portrait of the virgin of rosary. Also to be noted are the Belen church, El Recreo square, El Carmen monastery.
