  • Bad! Square filled with pigeons, more than human. All dirty, hence same people throw garbage down.

  • Or place of recreation and relaxation for locals, many people spent leisurely in the square. I saw people and large number of pigeons, feeding. Not to sit down, so of course there are feces, slowly trying to feel.

  • The curiosity of the place: the clock reversed, otherwise nothing special ;-) An element marking: the number of pigeons, hundreds or even thousands that fly in all directions depending on who gives dining (bcp Bolivian especially of children). In short, if you do not like these beasts, you will be warned :-)
