Cosy square with cafes & restaurants. I stopped there for coffee and dinner, friendly staff, mostly locals visiting, would definitely recommend. A bakery and a supermarket are also at hand.

One or two nice places to eat in the square, plus a theatre (we saw Carmen there), a mix of working (and not working) and middle classes with an edge to it. There is a daily flower market and on a Sunday the square is...More

Passed through here on the way back to our hotel. Could not see any special reason to hang around. You may come through here on the metro if you are visiting nearby attractions but I cannot see another reason to visit.

Don't expect anything to see or do. Just take a stop on a chair outside a cafe and enjoy the colourfull local life. The Plaza can show you all sides of life in the time of drinking a coffe or beer.

traditional African clothing convene outside their
businesses for long chats, and people shout to each
other across plazas and streets. Interspersed among
ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and
