Surrounded by government buildings and a few museums, this plaza is an interesting place to have eat your packed lunch amid hundreds of ravenous pigeons. When I was there marching bands were parading through which added another dimension to the visit. I did not see...More

This is a surprisingly wide spaced clean gem in the middle of sprawling narrow but dirty streets all around the plaza.

Is just to spend 20 minutes, nothing special. Some pictures will get fine there. Is safe and clean place, for small kids they can run after the pigeons.

The plaza is always lively, with many visitors and locals. The Presidential Palace, the art museum and the Cathedral are all here and there is a ceremony each evening when uniformed soldiers take down the square's flags around 6:00PM. Sadly, there are many, many vendors...More
