The day we went they set up and had a festival with live music. The weather was warm for a mid winter day though still around 20 degrees Celsius. The locals were friendly though most did not speak English.

This Plaza has a nice old scool fountain in the middle. Early in the morning is a good time to people watch before it gets too hot later in the day.

Even thought this my home city, Plaza Fundadores is a place I always visit when I'm on holiday here. Colourful, charming and full of traditions.
