  • Central square with a beautiful Cathedral and historic buildings. Focused events every Thursday with karaoke.

  • The old plaza has especially in the evening hours a good atmosphere Bolivian style. Children and adults who talk and play. The beautiful featured buildings and Church make for beautiful atmosphere.

  • I loved the vegetation and the cleanliness and order of square. The people are very kind, very presence of municipal guards there is what makes you feel even more secure.

  • A must see sight at the core of the city. There are always people around and it is a amazing site to get your bearings and meet with people or rally at before exploring the rest of the city. There are people selling coffee at the plaza itself if you want a casual break or you can go to any of the many restaurants around the plaza. It is mostly clean and really the heart of the city. There is no free parking or bathrooms available on site though.
  • Very nice plaza. There are many benches to sit on and chess tables to pass time. The park has many coffee vendors that walk around and sell cafe con leche (local specialty). It was very nice to enjoy a cup of coffee and gaze at the surrounding architecture of buildings and cathedral
  • The central plaza of Santa Cruz. - Lots of pigeons, lots of shadow, most relaxing place at midday. Not too many shops arround... just fine to sit and watch other people passing by...
  • An historic square of my beloved Santa Cruz de la Sierra. The Cathedral is located there Many trees and monuments new.and old are located there During weekends on summer concerts are offered there. Clean Municipal guards are permanently seeing it
  • The main place to start visiting the city. Only extreme bad weather will empty it... always with visitors and locals enjoying the pleasant weather, even at early hours of the morning. Coffee runs around in little carts for sale to amenize conversations and just to take a minute in the simple pleasures of life, like friendship and a good company. Locals meet regularly and some take the challenge of a chess game, others find their spot to refresh from the heat of the day, but all soak in the warmth welcome that this city has for everybody.
