  • At the time of the holy inquisition, trials were taking place here. It takes its name from the cross itself that is noted for its green color. It is a short walk from Dela Paja Square but all in all we could easily avoid the detour. I still attach some souvenir photos

  • The name of the square comes from the cross painted green that the Holy Inquisition installed during its inquisitorial processes. Beyond the historicity of the place, the square does not offer much: small indentation of the calle de Segovia, highlights only a wall fountain (north side), of nineteenth-century invoice but which is overlaid by a 17th-century statue (recovery from a previous fountain in another square). I didn't come there on purpose, but I found myself passing by on my way to the plaza de La Paja coming from the cathedral crypt.
