  • Is a square where passes good part of the transport public that is directed towards santa key, Cologne step, and others areas to the North of the capital; It usually deals for commemorative events and sometimes protest. The time most appropriate to visit is early in the morning (between 6:30 and 7:30 am) or evening and especially weekend, when more time heat has given; You can find families sharing, group of young people on scooters, bicycles or people who simply sit to observe and enjoy the landscape and the climate. Around the square you can find various restaurants fast food, banks and shopping centers of high level within the capital.
