  • The candelario me fascino district keeps its historic houses, its narrow streets but full of life with its people and crafts... On a street I met a pair of grandparents so original that the scene left me impatient with excitement. In another corners the sales of wafers with areauipa and strawberry cream ... and let's not say the ants... I am slightly curious to taste them. The large bookcase that shelters one of the streets surprises... the museums of Boero and The Bolivar Square ... selling ice cream the ummmm pigeons

  • We have made a good choice to stay there. Nearby downtown, but a quiet environment. Nice. We have made a bike citytour, also well organised and informative. We felt at ease walking down the streets.  more »
