We walked there late afternoon for a nice rising moon. Many people around but not hustling us which was really nice. Some graffiti on some of the government buildings sadly but it was a good experience with two Michael Jackson's performing with some guests joining....More

Plaza Bolivar could be a nice place, it has this typical Spanish colonial organisation with the cathedral and the official buildings. All are well maintained and it could be a nice visit. However to enjoy it you have to cross the swarm of pigeons always...More

It's quite a beautiful and historic spot. The govt buildings near the cathedral are all with the hike. Don't miss it.

When this place has gained cafes and restaurants might be worth visiting - until then do go and see to marvel at brutalist architecture alongside one colonial building left - but don’t expect too much

Worth visiting the square. Is helpful if you go with a guide as they can provide some background and insight. Impressive and a good place to simply sit and watch the people. All sorts.
