  • In this square there are giant figures of dinosaurs, the pqueños like to much. In addition there are entertainments that mimic the Caveman era. They are not sophisticated games. There is also a Museum of science, very interesting, in the same place.

  • Since makes some few years receives the name (or rather the qualifying) of "Plaza Jurassic", as was equipped with recreations large-scale of dinosaurs. In addition, there the Museum of Natural history of conception can be found. Visit with daylight, since it is fairly quiet, however, night is not uncommon that passers-by are assaulted when there is little flow of people.
