  • To the be a square main features with much security, but not is very large in comparison to other squares of capital and is generates much traffic. Another highlight is the presence of many light/phone cables, although this is recurrent in La Paz

  • All the locals come out to walk about and meet their friends , lots of pop up street stalls and busking 
  • Just what you want to see when I travel by our South America, colonial beauty, appreciate our culture in terms of landscapes, people, style.
