  • You have to be willing to walk almost a half day and assisted to optimize time; If not, there are so many galleries that visit and each has several floors down and up not knowing is lost time, causes tiredness; Moreover, it has to review the quality of fabrics, which I'm not complaining; and the prices are 3-1 on many garments.

  • I went with my best friend with the idea of finding clothes at very affordable prices, we find them but I must walk a lot and ask in different stores and slip completely into the galleries and visit all floors. Of preference ask in galleries in floors high as those costs are lower to them lower. There are very good quality and beautiful designs clothes if you search well and asks. The downside is that the area is unsafe and very dirty and are concentrated many people, should be very aware of your personal belongings and avoid going too late to the place. Leave the place also is complicated.

  • You should go with patience and time to walk and go through all the galleries to find what one seeks. There are for all tastes and all sizes. The quality of the clothes is VERY good. Already depends on the tastes fit. It is messed up because the same type of clothing are not necessarily close. But ask the sellers and they guide you. There are many places for lunch. I had lunch on the top floor of the galleries NOW. A lunch Menu agradeble to 8 soles.
