Over the "carnaval" holidays I witnessed people's behavior from maybe the 15th century. Very very dangerous feel given so many drunk people. After the holidays you can enjoy the sun and an overall peace

The plaza is very well taken care of. A lot of detail is pit into the plants around the plaza. There are lots of benches. A lot of older indigenous Bolivians walk around begging for money.

I spent most of my time in Sucre wondering here. It is not a big Plaza, but so nice and welcoming, there is people from all parts of the world, going along together with locals. Just sit, relax and observe. You will learn a lot while having fun.

Very nicely manicured plaza with BEAUTIFUL BUILDINGS around it, BUT it is full of cute little children who are “forced” to work selling different things, shining shoes or just begging. It is heart breaking to see the “rich children” with their parents enjoying the day playing around, driving little children cars, or just relaxing and little “street children” looking at... More

The plaza is a relatively quiet square in the heart of Sucre. The local people treat it with care and there are very few signs of vandalism or graffiti here. There are the usual squadrons of pigeons but no food is permitted to be sold for them. Lots of shade and it is really possible to sit quietly and watch... More

I was fortunate enough to be in Sucre just before Christmas and this place was just magical. They had strings of lights like waterfalls across the paths and lovely illuminated angels. The square is lovely anyway but this just made it extra special. It's the hub of Sucre and full of bustle with people relaxing, walking, selling stuff etc and... More

This is the center of the City of Sucre. There are many street vendors, locals and tourists alike. Definitely a must see in the City of Sucre although you would be hard-pressed to avoid it.

It will be complicated any way to not go through the square if you visit Sucre... Most shops, hotels and restaurants are located in the streets around the square. Worthwhile to pick up a hotel close to the square

Me and my boyfriend stayed in the square in the afternoon and it was delicious. We could see a bit how people use and enjoy the square and appreciate the beauty of the place. A perfect place to relax.
