Many gruesome memories are connected with this spot, for it was here that the public executions during the Spanish regime generally took place. Since the advent of the new era the Plaza has become a favorite resort for idlers, who are attracted by its comfort as well as its former reputation. The antique urn on the pedestal to the right, and the long row of settees extending into the background, are carved out of solid stone, and have stood in their present position for centuries.
