A short uphill walk across Senado Square is the St Augustine Square where St Augustine Church and St Joseph Seminary is located. Benches under the tree is a good place to relax and with little conversation with companions. Not so many tourist came, it is a beautiful historic place.

You have to stop and check the map every now and then to see exactly where you are in the Heritage site there are so many beautiful buildings. It is a little bit quieter than St Pauls and the Square. but clearly still every popular with the tourists. This entire area is a beautiful place to visit.
