  • the square is nice but lately flocking lot and becomes cause for long lines. Unfortunately the widespread crime fd makes it harder to enjoy these spzi and the best thing is to visit it but without stopping too.

  • This densely packed with people hurry or begging for money, is quite insecure, the Bank are full of homeless people. AU so there are trees of flowers beautiful and a monument.

  • As any city in the country has in its centre a plaza Bolivar, in contrast to this is better cared for, around the Central magnificent there are several shops, used books sites and one other seller of sweets. A good place to visit and have a good end of day.
