  • Nice to have the images from the famous television series now in the really see. The square was reconstructed, so that was not so cozy, but that Park would be already open again.

  • Visit SF is mandatory when you visit to California, a bustling city and quiet at the same time. Worth visiting.

  • It is a park that looks more like a square, however, has a view of the city. In front, on the other side of the street, has a set of Victorian houses known as the Painted Ladies. The Park is under construction, so we stayed outside.
