    Heart of the old city

    by Toughluck Written May 12, 2014

    We enjoyed going to the Plaza and just walking the neighborhoods. It's the old city and it's style is unlike anywhere else. It's also known as Plaza Mayor.

    The Madrono ~ the city's emblem

    by krissyM Written Jun 21, 2007

    Also located in the Puetra del Sol is the cute statue of a bear pawing the madrono. The madrono is a strawberry tree and the emblem of the city. This square is a popular meeting place for the locals.

    There are many shops, restaurants, cafe and hotels near the square. Most people would like gathering here especially at night.
