  • It is relaxing and also historical. Now there are more policemen and guards all over the place. Also less ambulant sellers that's awesome. There is more space and green areas to relax or bike to do activities.
  • At this time of the year is just fantastic to walk at this place (the jacaranda tree is blooming) the sight is just beyond imagination, the flowers are purple and foliage green what a beautiful combination!
