  • This is your standard plaza that you see in every city in very country in South and Central America. I used it to sit down, people watch and read some books. I have seen better, I have seen worse.  more »
  • Beautiful and Nice square. How is at the Center, will have to pass through it. Enjoy the day, because the nights are poorly lit.

  • Square typical of province, something careless and not offers much for show. Around shops you will find several.
