  • It is a small place, there isn't much investment there to make it more pleasant despite being in the fourth region little shade trees, there are spoiled the environment with buildings out of context, there is no interest from the authority to rescue the historic monument of buildings, there is a good point and it has underground parking, how horrible is the price, or the grocery stores of the former saltpeter offices were as unfair as they are in this parking lot, literally out the eye of the face.
