The Plaza de Capuchinos, also known as Plaza del Cristo de los Faroles, is a cobblestone square located in the San Miguel-Capuchinos neighborhood. It can be accessed either from Conde de Torres Cabrera street or from the Bailio slope.

This square is one of the most famous places in the city of Cordoba, and of it, the architect Rafael de la Hoz Arderius said that «Never in architecture has more been said with less», or the poet Ricardo Molina «It is nothing more than a rectangle of lime and sky».

The Plaza de Capuchinos opens in the seventeenth century on some houses that the Marquis de la Almunia kept in the northeastern part of the town. It was shaped by the construction of the convent of Capuchinos in 1633, as well as the Church of Los Dolores, which was completed in 1728.

The square was previously called Plaza del Corbacho (due to its proximity to the Cuesta del Corbacho, currently known as Cuesta del Bailío), Plaza de Almunia, due to the houses that the Marquis of Almunia owned in the area, and Plaza de los Dolores.
