A typical colonial square but very active during the weekends with lots of entertainment. Not a destination but a pleasant place to spend and hour or so.

It is fun to see how many people old and young hang out at the square in the late afternoon and early evening. The surrounding buildings ooze history. We would have an afternoon beer on the la plaza hotel balcony and watch the world go by which seems to be the main activity here.

So nice, you can relax during the day or after diner. It's safe. It's very beautiful, there is a lot of local people that go there.

This plaza is the heart of Sucre, with government buildings and the cathedral facing the square. Sucre is and has been for some time in the throes of new construction and/or remodeling, and so the city is just full of dirt. Once that is handled, and the auto/bus traffic is managed, this plaza should be a real gem.

Walk, sit at the shadowed square, enjoy the architecture and history. Blocks away from handcraft market, plenty of food places.

I think that in any Latin city/town you visit, you've got to make it to the mail plaza. Sucre's plaza is a nice place to sit down and relax. There is alway some sort of busyness going on and it's fun to watch.
