We visited the church on one of the sides of the park to light a candle and give thanks. Then, we walked in the park to view the other street to see what they offered. We picked up a large Pilsner beer for $1.50 and...More

Just an average spot in the city. It would have been nice, if it were not for the countless homeless people coming up to me just demanding money. Sad really, this place could have a lot more to offer.

A typical city square with a great garden and lots of people activity. Truly the heart of town because it is filled with locals as opposed to the market which is full of tourists.

So lucky that we are only a block from this lovely park with a beautiful church on one side. The Christmas tree went up today and several Christmas were already up. Well maintained and lovely place to relax.

Interesting place in the centre of town to relax on a bench and people watch. The municipal palace is on one side of the street with Iglesia San Luis on another side.

Surrounded by historic buildings, the park is a great place to relax with the locals. There is Wi-Fi there but it is not reliable.

Sit on the benches and learn about the indigenous war hero, who defended the tribes of the Sierras in Northeastern Ecuador. Gaze at the yellow government building, the church and Daily Grind coffee shop.

It is worth while visiting this Parque. It has been redone in a beautiful way a few years ago, and offers great places to hangout, people watch, and rest. At night the lights on the Municipal Building and Cathedral are very picturesque and beautiful. It...More

The park offers great people watching and free wifi to plan your next adventure. It's worth the visit at night when colored lights make the park look pretty neat.

After visiting the Mercado delos Ponchos, I visited this park. I has the statue (head only), fountains, beautiful flowering trees and plants, benches to rest and sit down, etc. Located near by are the San Luis Church and Municipal Building.
