Around the main square, the building facades and some of the buildings are original. There are several lovely parks and you can go into the schools and library to view the murals and architectural features. A nice half day stroll

This is the focal point. The giant square in the middle of the area is chock full of people-playing, walking, reading, and relaxing. It's not only proximity to the historical sites and sights but the square abuts the central shopping street, and perhaps, the best...More
