Rafaela, Argentina61 contributions24 helpful votes
This public square was originally a place where the Chicco family made mud bricks for a living, so it was manually made deeper and deeper below the street level through hard work over the years. Eventually, that line of work was left aside, and a member of the family made the decission to donate the area to set up a public space for recreation and rest. So, it became a very unusual public park, where kids usually played (I was one of those kids in my youth, and some still do it) by rolling down the slopes on the sides or sliding down on home-made cardboard "sledges" for fun. It has beautiful plants and flowers carefully arranged, with a mermaid fountain in its center where people used to throw coins for wishes (a rare thing to see nowadays, but still part of the charm of the place) and public seats for people to enjoy the sun and usually drink some mate with friends. It's specially beautiful in springtime. At night, it can become a more private place for would-be lovers to take their first steps talking in a more romantic setting under the moonlight, as you feel more guarded from unwanted attention from people passing by. You shouldn't leave Rafaela without paying this place a visit!!
