“Beautiful, especially around holidays”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

It's a perfect place to come for a walk during the day or at night, to sit down on the bench and enjoy the amazing Oaxacan atmosphere - everything happens more slowly here! Around holidays it's beautifully decorated and there are concerts on the plaza

“With music”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

There were somem military music and it gives a strong atmosphere. The color of the stone is interesting. Go also to the market, not far away from there.

“location extraordinaire, poor watering holes”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

a gathering place, fine arboreal structures, the catedral below par to San Domingo but still a major feature. However the several cafeterias and snack places lacked the illustrious aesthetics and were rather shabby when looked from within (kitchen and bathroom that is). Fine walking, promenading and
partaking in the evening stroll with the locals. D.H.Lawrence did spent some time there.
