I was walking around and came across it. It's a beautiful nice garden. The statues are very nice and the fountain was lovely. I stopped there for a few minutes to rest and plan my next visit. It was a very pleasant surprise.

Small little garden opposite the cathedral. Nice plants and at the end is a statue and water fountain. It's a small but picturesque place to rest and have a bite.
