Fodor's Review

According to legend, the British, while laying siege to the city in 1797, mistook the flaming torches of a rogativa—religious procession—for Spanish reinforcements and beat a hasty retreat. In this little plaza, a monument of a bishop and three women commemorates the legend. The striking contemporary statue was created in 1971 by the artist Lindsay Daen to mark the Old City's 450th anniversary. The fine view of La Fortaleza and the harbor is a bonus.
