  • Excellent service, nice staff, super location, great cars, good prices! Simply GREAT!!
  • Beautiful area full of symbolism and by the beach. Many consider this building ugly, but it is one of the most stunning areas of the cities. Worth getting closer to it from the beach side, in order to feel its strength.
