This wide plaza is rimmed on one side by the white, spired Cathedral of Nossa Senhora da Conceição and on the other by the hulking, neoclassical City Hall . Just off the square is the Iron House , which was designed by Eiffel in the late-19th century as the governor’s residence, though its metal-plated exterior proved unsuitable for tropical conditions.
