  • It's a regular plaza. Nice, in one of the more active parts of the city.
  • Center of Armenia great shopping
  • The corner Café Plazuela Café offers red to 400 pesos when you buy it and take seat sitting voucher $500, I think uncomfortable because if they charge $500 from the beginning there is no problem is good coffee
