Landmark Tourist Spot
Built to accommodate the crowds that would await Pope John Paul II, Plaza de la Paz sits strategically in the center of the city. Today it hosts numerous events of importance, including presidential speeches, cultural performances, and protests. Combine a stroll through the square with a visit to the cathedral visible in the background. If you're in the mood for some retail therapy, head to the shopping center right across from the square.
