This is a good place to start a stroll of La Serena's shopping district. It is a handsome, well maintained square with a mordenist fountain in its centre and some decent architecture surrounding it. A nice place for a rest or a spot of people watching.
The main square in town is where the family action is. There's always something to enjoy in family, from the traditional horses, the small sweats stands, to puppet shows, electric cars, wave rollers and most of the time there's what is called a Feria (Fair) where you'll find the local artisans and artists offering their creations and stands with all... 更多
I don't know if it is every day, but I went on a Saturday and there were a bunch of tents there on the perimeter. Most of them sold souvenirs. There was an abundance of tents selling fruit juice and ice cream. Nice to wander around in for an hour or so.

It was relatively quiet and had some music playing. There were gypsies around trying to come and talk and make some money.... 更多
A very peaceful, relaxing and safe plaza. As well as the obligatory courting teenagers there are wandering musicians who will serenade you and declare their undying love for you (for a price, of course) but on the whole it's a good place to sit and chill out.

There are plenty of benches in the plaza itself and a few cafes on the south side of the plaza making this a great place to sit down, pop... 更多
