  • Visit to the historic centre where you can see the Church, the Government Palace, Legislative Assembly, City Hall, parks, gazebos, busts, Cathedral and others, knowing the history of the city. The Cathedral is undergoing renovations, so it wasn't possible to enjoy your construction. I suggest a walk in the market Hall (the 3 markets), lunch in one of the restaurants on the terrace of the main market) and a walk in the historic centre then. To do everything on foot. By car, you have to look for parking (there are several around the Center). On the street there are keepers at all locations. Worth the ride for those who enjoy history.

  • Visit to the Cathedral that was with the outside. Very nice interior. Visit to the Municipal market with your range of products and smells. Just for those who have interest in seeing beautiful fruits, meet seasonings.
