  • See your pool with the shield national wrong. The stone that commemorates an of the signatures of our independence. Read the monolith that knocks the local myth that conception is below sea level and one day will disappear with a tsunami... or simply take a sitting ice cream watching people pass. It is the centre par excellence of Design Centre from where you can see history and how the penquista.

  • Downtown civic main conception, place of much flow from person... always a point of reference to reunite with old friends... very important part of the historic centre of the town, its shops and buildings surrounding it will help preserve that touch of history while retaining its ancient and classical facades of the colony.
