Fodor's Review

One of the fines plazas in Spain, this superb Renaissance creation is dominated by a bronze equestrian statue of Francisco Pizarro—the work of an American sculptor, Charles Rumsey. Notice the Palacio del Marqués de la Conquista, the most dramatic building on the square with plateresque ornamentation and imaginative busts of the Pizarro family flanking its corner balcony. It was built by Francisco Pizarro's half-brother Hernando.
