Most town squares have a church on them, like this one dedicated to the Virgin Mary of the Waters.
Reminded me of Notre Dame in Paris
Entrance to church dedicated to the worship of the Virgin of the Waters.

View towards the chapel. Portraits in Banos' church are of miracles they attribute to Our Lady of the Holy Waters.
