  • At the corner of one of the streets of the old centre, stumbled upon the University... We placed a few minutes in the patio... Very friendly. Frankly, we would have had a little more time we would have tried to offer our services for a french course.

  • So hey can visit the internal patio. Free of charge. Goes for a break ... sit down and breathe. There are no options to something else in there.

  • Nice building where you can take a photo of the bust of Gabriel García Márquez, easier to find than his house.
