  • Unfortunately I could not appreciate it since the same square was festooned with banners and flags, all protests, everything was very dirty, all very deslusido. A shame! I guess that sinlanplaza was clean, it had seen well. 0 desire to take a picture

  • A beautiful monument in the main square in front of the Obelisk. Surrounded by plants and flowers and it is worth spending a few minutes admiring.
