Sunday!

Very crowded on the Sunday, many people on the street, everybody had a cool hangout - relaxed atmosphere, in the week a little bit of boring

Yes, this is nothing but the central plaza, but everyone in town will walk through it eventually. Santa Cruz is design in different "rings" and they all start here. If you are standing in the plaza facing the church lok to your right, there is a CINEMA, inside the Cinema, to the rigth of the ticket booths there is a... More

This is the center of Santa Cruz. It's a plaza with trees and benches and too way too many pigeons... Else around the plaza you will find restaurants and caffee etc which are not bad at all.

The center more or less of Santa Cruz. The Governor and Mayor centers are here as is the Cathedral. Post office is half a block away and several banks headquarters are close. The buildings are in better condition than most of the larger cities in Bolivia. Lots of pigeons to feed for the little ones.

On Sundays, there's a tourist market set up beside the Cathedral. We went around 4 p.m. when it was cooler and shaded. The vendors were very polite and not pushy at all. Loved it!

This is a lovely plaza, with mature trees and a comforting setting. There are some restaurants around the square, but not many. Adjacent are art galleries and the Cathedral, which are enjoyable to visit.

A must see place. It is a true blend of the past where the Cathedral and the Santa Cruz Government House, among other buildings, amaze you with its architecture and the present, with charming souvenir stores and modern coffee shops and bars. Extremely cute to see old folks seating on the benches of the plaza, sharing stories with their friends,... More

A plaza full of people sitting on benches, around the church steps, motorcycles riding around and people of all ages strolling joyfully. There are many vendors & you can get excellent fruit juice, ice cream, canapés, arts & crafts. The Nativity scene centered in the middle was awesome & many people were taking pics. Excellent & safe atmosphere!
