  • Beautiful square, with free Wi Fi (careful what you sail), the day that I had an awful tent of 'revolution', but the square itself is beautiful, with all the animals that exist.

  • To say of this square which is a piece of history and that the streets have happened amounts of important events, it is more than a reference of childhood, is almost like the soul of the city, and is that being in it is something different, you can sit down and read a good book or just watch as people give him feeding pigeons or squirrels that are in place or even take a cup of coffee in one of the many local what's nearby.
