There also is placed the Plaza of the new Pillar with its fountain dated XVIII just in the rear of the Cathedral. Just turning to the right we will get into the Sacred Art (Religious) Museum as well as the Cathedral of Santa Ana, (optional) with its Gothic interior and its historical contribution.
We will continue down the plaza de Santa Ana, with its monumental buildings emblematic and representative of the society. We conclude in the House of the Governor or Columbus Museum, (entry optional) where we will be ending this historical tour.
