This square is next to museo del oro and is full of homeless, trash, vendors, people that are just starring one to another. It's not like a safe place.

We were disappointed by this square. It has historic significance however the square is dirty, full of rubbish and homeless people. It didn’t feel safe nor a pleasant place to walk around.

Like much around this part of the centro area it is dirty and run down and nothing much here. It is close to the Gold Mueum so you may pass by.

There is nothing much to do at this Plaza. I just passed through it when visiting the Museo de Oro and churches near by.

Just a plaza with nothing particularly of interest. The excitement comes from the nearby gold museum and the San Francisco Church, but the plaza itself is fairly plain.

Wouldn't really consider it as an attraction but there are some interesting buildings around as well as the Gold Museum.

Loved the plaza it is very Colombian style of a everyday farmers market! I recommend it! Especially for the traveler who loves to experience the way of life of the locals. Their is food stands in every corner. Fresh everyday.

Interesting place, many thing to look in the street; be careful with your things, put your back pack in front. Try to go too museo del oro (museum of gold). You ca see around very beautiful architecture.

The actual only interest is that it is in front of the Gold Museum. A WORLD CLASS museum!!
