San Pedro Claver Square is framed by the church of the same name and a row of restaurants and small jewelry and local handicrafts shops. A striking statue of San Pedro Claver (the Jesuit missionary called “the slave of slaves”) by the artist Enrique Grau contrasts with the avant-garde sculptures made from scrap pieces by Edgardo Carmona.
