  • To say that it is a cultural precinct, I say it in all its extension, because there are about urban art, coffee to enjoy with friends, make purchases from your bedside books, there found books that in mexico there is in existence, in itself is a pleasure to walk its halls, since you can read as if you were in a library, I recommend it to all readers.
