This plaza in the center has different levels connected with stairs and ramps for wheelchairs. Compared to other Latin American cities they really make an effort in San José to be friendly to wheelchairs. The transition to the adjacent National Theatre is less successful. The square is a bit higher than its basement. The entrance to the Precolumbian Gold museum... 更多
This very big square surrounded by National Theater, Gold Museum, Tourist information center, and shops. the fountains on the floor make children having lots of fun.
I was there last week and I was disappointed to find the plaza completely cordoned off to the public. Evidently they are renovating the museums that are (were?) underneath the plaza. Unfortunately, many of the nearby shops have closed also. I'm not sure why. The pedestrian walkway is still open and the streets were not closed.
it's a bitter sweet experience, because in one hand you have the National Theater, Jade museum, city's main walking boulevard, fast food restaurants all over the place, pigeons fed by kids that at the same time are trying to catch them, peddlers, but no culture activities in reference to the square name.
Always good for a stop with students because there is always something to see and do. There are several places where you can grab something to eat.
Not a whole lot to see here per se, but it's the center of the action. From jugglers to old rockers to children singing songs of hope in the Easter season and balloon artists, it's all here! This is people watching at its best. Grab a churro and enjoy!
Lively downtown square where the locals hang out on the weekends. Surrounded by shopping and housing some of the major museums (none of which I have been in). There were a couple of clowns making balloon animals and/or painting faces for kiddos and you can buy pigeon food very cheaply. There is a fast-foody churro restaurant on the side opposite... 更多
A nice place to take a break in central San Jose, it is the place to meet up with people in the city and always full of life. It is fun to watch the kids feed and/or chase the pigeons, and it is next to or on top of several of San Jose's sights so it is quite convenient.
