A really nice spot to sit in and relax; it's close to a big market, a few good historical buildings, and a very good bar called La Iguana. Colombian people are very friendly, and if you speak Spanish, you'll have plenty of opportunities to practice...More

It's nothing spectacular but it's lovely to stop and grab some snacks in the evening from the local stalls. The cathedrals surrounding it are worth a look inside.
