“lovely Christmas lights”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

I was fortunate enough to be in Sucre just before Christmas and this place was just magical. They had strings of lights like waterfalls across the paths and lovely illuminated angels. The square is lovely anyway but this just made it extra special.
It's the hub of Sucre and full of bustle with people relaxing, walking, selling stuff etc and when I was there several musical performances too.
There are some lovely buildings around it but, in my opinion, the best restaurants are on side streets.

“There is always something happening at the plaza”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

This is the center of the City of Sucre. There are many street vendors, locals and tourists alike. Definitely a must see in the City of Sucre although you would be hard-pressed to avoid it.

“The true center of the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

It will be complicated any way to not go through the square if you visit Sucre... Most shops, hotels and restaurants are located in the streets around the square.

Worthwhile to pick up a hotel close to the square

“To stay in the afternoon”

Me and my boyfriend stayed in the square in the afternoon and it was delicious. We could see a bit how people use and enjoy the square and appreciate the beauty of the place. A perfect place to relax.
