  • The structure itself of the Obelisk is impressive, is very pleased to observe closely, and stroll the surrounding phial has in general been renovated at least Saturday there are many cultural activities and police surveillance, for my is a good choice when visiting the city or for a different time.

  • Place where gathers local tourists and young for sports training wheels, like skateboarding and roller skates. I wouldn't recommend the site during the night.
