  • I was dissappointed that, after living abroad for years, arrive here and find out they cut off all the trees that used to give it such a nice vibe and shadows. It also made the christmas decorations rather dull, as the trees were used to be all covered in lights The place is secure and family-friendly. A really beautiful plaza nevertheless and has Friend's Cafe, as well some Rex Cream close by for ice creams. There's not really much to do in it other than meet with people for some coffee and relax, so tourists keep in mind that. Nevertheless, many public activities happen there so keep an eye
  • Town hall was decorated beautifully for the holidays, there was live music, rides for the kids and food to buy due to the celebration of the 3 Kings (January 6th). Good security as well.
  • Colonial architecture type of plaza. Beautiful historic place.
  • My home town plaza beautiful
  • Good secured family place. Not much to do there but eat and watch ornaments.
