  • A bridge and a bridge made of brick. For here it seems that particularly. A small park there where students walk. We were looking for and were walking there suddenly.

  • Lindo lugar para fotos, los grafitis han dañado la vista de la ciudad colonial
  • A strong piece of colonial arquitecture used to be the main entrance to the down town. It's a mixture of nature and colonial style perfect to relax, read and walk around.
  • Excellent place to walk and have a picnic. Very safe a secure area during the day. Caution at night as some unsavoury characters were lurking about. Beautifully maintained colonial architecture
  • Views and nice place to walk and sightseeing
  • Historical place, was build in 1873.
