This is a picture of the Santa Fe Plaza. During Christmas time it is decorated with light and farolitos, which are paper bags with candles inside. The Santa Fe Plaza was established in 1610 as the center of the city. Today, people still view the plaza as the center of the city. It is the first place people who are visiting go, and there is a great deal of shopping and galleries in the surrounding area. Lately there has been controversy over the large numbers of young people who visit until late at night. In this sense, things have really not changed. Since the Plaza was built, young people have made it their place to visit with oneanother. In fact, the Plaza was considered an appropriate place for young men to court young women hundreds of years ago.
