San Diego: Padre Pedro Plaza

Church with two front bell towers

Created in 1876, Padre Pedro Plaza continues to serve as the center of San Diego’s cultural and social life, linking the community’s identity to the Hispanic plaza traditions of Latin America and Spain. Live oak and elm trees provide visitors respite from the South Texas sun, encouraging an exploration of local history alive in the architecture surrounding the plaza.
