The Plaza de Mariana Pineda renders homage to the local heroine who died in defence of freedom during the dictatorial reign of Fernando VII. In this square you can see the statue to Mariana Pineda, a monument known as the "Heroine of Freedom". Behind the Plaza de Mariana Pineda you'll find the Bibataubín Palace, a building constructed by the Bourbons atop the Arabic gate of Bibataubín. A pleasant walk will take you to the Basilica de Nuestra Señora de las Angustias (Our Lady of Sorrows), which houses an image of the Virgin of Sorrows, the patron saint of Granada.
