Not much here but a statue to the Liberator, but you need to see it and salute the hero. You can easily walk here from the Independence Plaza.

Just so everyone knows, the entire plaza is closed off as of mid-April 2017. Not sure how long. The other three are all open. There is a beautiful old bank building across the street that is worth seeing.

This is one of the 4 squares surrounding Plaza Independencia. They each have their own character. This square has a statue of General San Martin. All the the squares are in good shape.

They are more like parks, since they are very green. We were told that they are placed that way since there are lots of earthquakes so people could evacuate quickly. Tell you, nicest evacuation center ever!

There is not much to see except the statue. Irritating skateboarders ruined the visit. OK for a sit down if walking around the town but cannot really be called an attraction.
