“Chain Plaza”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2012

It is somehow a bit sad to see such a lovely plaza surrounded by Wendy's and Subway outlets. The art fair on Saturday morning was very pleasant. One artist had some beautiful work but I couldn't determine how I could get a piece home.

“in love all over again”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012

this plaza was across the street from my hotel and it was the perfect place to relax, during the day was full of life, some days with live music and dancers, a night so nice and quiet for couples

Nice place, excellent location, you can walk around, buy some gift and drink a coffee or tea at "the poets passage".

“Very nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

Great place to sit on a bench a rest a bit. Located close to a superMax and Walgreens. Nice little kiosks sales pasteries and coffee right on the corner. Beware of the pigeons!

“Nice Square”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

Nice area but a little disappointing with all the chain stores and fast food joints hiding behind colonial facades.
