  • Very pretty square with fountains, flowers and palm trees, as well as clean and very nice. The location is great, close to several historical buildings. Many great shots in this square and is a place to sit and chat with friends without seeing the time pass.

  • Linda, cheia de pokemons
  • Bom lugar para relaxar.
  • "Liberty plaza" - Yes, here you go free. Young finds the elders, people meet the wooded air. During day, a place for escape the stress of the downtown. At night, all cats are grey, and the nightlife find you.
  • The square is beautiful and lively both during the day and night. All the historical buildings around the square were once the state's secretarias, but now they house museums, the planetarium, the symphonic orchestra and the public library. During the day you'll see at the square people jogging, walking dogs and going to work. At night different arts performances happen there and the theatre and movies at CCBB are always busy. But the square is really alive on weekends, when people go from one museum to another. Don't miss it!
  • lindo lugar
