  • Interesting place to watch people feeding pigeons.
  • Cosy square. Lots of pigeons
  • Not the biggest plaza but still worth a visit. With a Cathedral and Government Palace where the President lives, this plaza has some nice looking buildings. The plaza itself is full of pigeons and police. Lots of benches with locals sitting around enjoying the surroundings with shade
