  • the plaza bolivar is a place of encounter with cultists and local craftsmen, also offered an infinite number of books in its stores at affordable prices, on the other hand you can see part of the Andean corrdillera and you can visit its cathedral to the front

  • As a beautiful square, that doesn't mean no one, but neglected both in maintenance and safety. You have a unique view of the historic centre of the city

  • Historic site.
  • The hero liberator of the americas, Simon Bolivar square. Ideal for breaks outdoors in the heart of the city. Downtown everything, just steps away from the first station of the cable car, right in front, the Palace of the governorate, and to the East the Cathedral of Mérida.

  • The historic center of Mérida is well maintained although it fails the garbage collection. Very nice lit square on Christmas nights.

  • It is a very nice place, but how in all city must take into account the insecurity in the evening. Don't forget to buy one super sighs that sell on the street.

  • A park very clean, centrally located, is relatively close to everything, nice place to sit and eat an ice cream, artisans are in high season to sell their products...
