  • Nice architecture around the square and good place for people watching. They could do with less pigeons however, the place is swamped. 
  • Praza which concentrates story and the seat of national power. The seat of the Parliament, the Executive Palace and the Cathedral. Beautiful buildings, many well kept. The only drawback of the square is the excess of pigeons infesting the place.
