    Adjoining the Plaza Espana, the Monticulo gives amazing views over the city and is also a nice spot to rest. The yellow line cable car passes overhead.  more »

    Located in the traditional district of Sopocachi, a friendly place, gazebo, Catholic Church, romantic streets and with a nice breeze.

    to my Park mound I thought it was beautiful, but someone tells you that I am staying right in front. If in peace, in the downtown area, a trip can be somewhat annoying to visit only a square. There is so much to do in peace, that the mound is reelegado, but if they have time and do not know well what to do, go. It has a beautiful view of peace, but not better than others, the area where this is upper middle class, can be a good choice for breathing another air. It also has a monument to the fallen in the rather interesting military dictatorship, but not much more. the collective old blue let them, said plaza España.

    Nice place to look at the city. It is quiet to walk. From time to time come to drink alcoholic drinks in this place.

    A nice view, but there are better as the Pampahasi viewpoint. The walls are grafiteadas. It is a very quiet place in a nice area. There is a restaurant one block and the Spain square is three blocks approx.
