Plaza de Bolivar Reviews
Es un lugar bonito, pero encontramos alguno que otro habitante de la calle, pero nos pareció seguro de día. No estuvimos de noche. La iglesia es muy bonita y también es un pequeño mirador. more »It's a nice place, but we found some other inhabitants on the street, but we found it safe by day. We weren't there at night. The church is very nice and is also a small viewpoint.
Una catedral muy linda y sencilla, con forma de flor invertida y sin domo. En una plaza inmensa donde la gente se reune. more »A very nice and simple cathedral, shaped like an inverted flower and without a dome. In a huge square where people gather.
Take some pictures and keep moving. There's not much to do here.
Very typical center of Colombians cities. Just for a few minutes if you're tourist
