  • We spent 3 days for this place, it is very sad and seems lifeless, in those days for as long as we walk by it not saw more than 20 people, does not have any special charm and also in the absence of entertainment venues, the activity is almost zero

  • Probably the most beautiful square of Vegueta. Overlook beautiful buildings from the colonial era. Night view has a very special charm.

  • Nice old open space at the Cathedral. Many interesting buildings around the place. Definitely worth a visit.
