  • Tiene muchas pokestops
  • Impactante, imprescindible su visita
  • Historical site - a must see - a learning place for humanity
  • Excellent throughout the campus. When you do by the streets you becomes dense. The story that people there lived inside revives in each door, window, wall, and not only in the posters. Everyone should walk out there, at least once in our life. The museums inside, (the Malvinas, Haroldo Conti, etc), are very interesting and overflow our collective memory. I wish all areas were upgraded, since there are many closed spaces that overflow with furnishings, and could be used / enabled.
