Plaza Santo Domingo
Plaza Santo Domingo Review
The eponymous church looming over the plaza is the oldest in the city. Built in 1539, it has a simple whitewashed interior, bare limestone pillars, a raised choir, and an adjacent cloistered seminary. Local lore says the bell tower's twisted profile is the work of the Devil, who, dispirited at having failed to destroy it, threw himself into the plaza's well. At night the area fills up with tables from surrounding bars and restaurants.
