Nice square with lots of attractions like the Sunday market for instance. I have been there on many occasions and experienced all the changes from the Cathedral renovations to the pedestrian extension on the square Plaza 24 de Setiembre. The Ethnoligic museum and shopping malls all around are nicely designed in the colonial style that makes the centre of Santa... More

This is the main Plaza in the growing city of Santa Cruz (de la Sierra) and is very much the preferred location for shade, relaxation and general people watching. It is completely traffic free although you will have to cross roads to get to the center. There are plenty of seats and also one or two fixed chessboards where if... More

There is some shops, cafe's and restaurants around, but the plaza itself is more a place to come and relax. There's always people around but the plaza is of reasonable size so you can usually find an seat somewhere along it's sides. Have a seat, relax, and enjoy the people watching.

The Plaza is central to life in Santa Cruz. It's where friends meet, families go with kids, and where people go to relax and watch the world walk by. There are plenty of police, so it's safe. As with anywhere in Santa Cruz, don't leave your bags unattended.

I loved the plaza, and we returned often here with our 3 children, sometimes as a resting point in between other trips. It never failed to make me smile. I loved watching the people, the couples kissing on benches, the children chasing the pigeons, a game of chess, families strolling, old folks, young folks, and the beautiful old trees, and... More
