  • Lively, light and joy! Here is the bus that makes the city tour, very good and worth knowing this square too!

  • The square is closed for renovations, but all your round is also in the works. It's really hard to move there.

  • It is very little that you can enjoy because it is with renovation. But welcome are those works! I'll be back another time to enjoy his sculpture of General San Martín, its source, and the stem of the pine of San Lorenzo, historic tree linked to the eponymous battle.
