Had fun strolling around here and taking it all in. There were lots of vendors out when I went which was nice to check out. Plenty of snack options and interesting buildings to admire.

The day we went they set up and had a festival with live music. The weather was warm for a mid winter day though still around 20 degrees Celsius. The locals were friendly though most did not speak English.

Even thought this my home city, Plaza Fundadores is a place I always visit when I'm on holiday here. Colourful, charming and full of traditions.
