  • It is a place that worth a visit because it has both a historical sense by the name because in this square are the main events of the festival vallenato of Colombia a little neglected would be a spectacle if it stays cleaner and better care furniture not to be missed if you visit Valledupar

  • Wide central plaza, with great significance for vallenato music culture. Enjoy a good drink of whisky while walking by the place.
