  • It is a beautiful plaza with a central kiosk with clock and large flag. Formerly at the kiosk was installed a music band. Today almost all weekends there are shows. Highlights the party's authorities the first days of January. If you stay at the Hotel Prat, facing the square, choose rooms that overlook it and enjoy watching the shows. Also in this square begins the walk Baquedano, which has attractions that you can review looking for the attraction as "Baquedano Street"

  • Walk Baquedano hosts various activities. It looks life throughout the year. In it, various restaurants, bars and discos are located. It is a place that fosters the Bohemian, and family life. The black dot is the number of people in a situation of street, or criminals trying to scam you, or ask for money. It is unusual that the same beggar, you ask for 3 times money, in less than 2 hours. When you don't give them, they insult you. This generates much discomfort and insecurity to customers and workers who are exposed to them constantly.
