The place is your usual Spanish era plaza, but this time it is well maintained and it is right beside the dancing fountain and plaza burgos. It is worth a visit, especially it forms part of the Calesa tour.

Place looks like ti has been spiffed up a bit - what with the dancing fountain and fresh paint. You can't deny its roots, though - stores sell different wares from the old days, but they surround the plaza perimeter still. People strolling, taking pictures,...More
