Simple plaza with varied architecture( traditional, and Art Nouveau) at the top the Town Hall ( worth checking to see if tours are on to see inside) and cathedral at bottom. Many tourists hang around large green painted metal dogs!

This part of town contains Casa de Colon, the Cathedral and the Perros (dogs) with the pointed ears. The Plaza is merely the place to start your exploring or rest and have a coffee.

Beautiful square in the historic center of Vegueta. A great place to go for a stroll visiting museums and cathedrals, which are very close by.
