¿ Cassia / Senna ?  
Dear friends,
This ornamental shrub is found planted at many tourist places and in home gardens. The four-leaflet characteristic should be easy for those who know about this garden plant.

Are we seeing here Senna nitida ? In two photos zigzag branch can be seen. 
Yes, ... Wonderful ! Thank you very much for this ID.
