Candelaria square was formerly called The Moorish Chapel Square (Plaza de la Ermita de los Moriscos), ……

…..because said chapel was there. After the expulsion of the Moors in 1610, a convent of nuns of Candelaria was founded in its place,  hence its current name. The Convent was demolished in 1873, in times of the Mayor Fermín Salvochea, because of the damaged state which it was in. In 1879, the Cadiz City Council was authorised to acquire the large plot of land for public use and, in 1884, the mayor José Ramón de Santa Cruz undertook a large-scale reformation, urbanisation and landscaping of the square.
