  • Actually on grass is not preserved historic center, of echo they toppled several houses to make way for a road, and there is a mix of classic and new, it is not impressive

  • Beautiful site, but I had an event and all the square were a supermarket chain fences, he wouldn't appreciate it in its magnitude. Much smell of urine in the square, missing maintenance or place public baths for street dwellers.

Where to stay in Pasto

Just two hours from the border with Ecuador, Pasto represents a stop-off point for traveling business people, so you can bet on having plenty of choices when it comes to accommodations. A few older, more atmospheric hotels sit in the city's historic center, offering rooms with lots of character and various additional facilities. Simpler business-style hotels can be found farther from the center of town, usually close to the main regional highways--these are especially convenient for those wishing to explore the remoter parts of the region.
