Bonjour, cher ami Pedro,
Il faut un grand angle pour arriver à saisir toute cette scène.
Cela permet de mieux apprécier les édifices, sculptures, personnages de l'ensemble.
Merci également pour la note.

It's a nice church, looking rather square and compact, but it may be because of the angle it's seen from. The statue is nicely seen with only the sky as a background. I like the colors and light.

The Spanish explorer gave the name to this town as same as in Espanea. Obviously.
The bells and clock tower prominently above the palm trees garden and the horse and rider statue on left - nicely composed the combined sight. Fine blue sky and daylight prevailing.

The apostle looks very militant.
The clock tower, the statue and the palm trees are well presented against a beautiful blue background.
Lots of benches give a tranquil feeling to the square.
Best regards, Paul
