The history of

Santiago

 as the city began with the construction of the

Plaza de Armas

. In 1541, the Spanish powder magazine was built here, and later the Spanish military were based here, so the square is called Armory Square. Many historic buildings are located in the square. Here you can buy souvenirs and paintings of local artists, walk and sit for a while in the shade of palm trees.
