  • I was walking around looking for a pharmacy and got to the Plaza Bolivar, beautiful place and a nice statue , all the locals walking around a very nice atmosphere  more »
  • Very average park in central part of Armenia. The area is not the best part of town and is advisable to go with friend or group. I think every town large or small has a plaza de Bolivar.  more »
