  • Very cool little place with very many little shops each with individual owners. Many of the products for sale are actually made by the owners. Also these are all locally owned and sourced products from the local community. Si the money earned from the sales help the local community.
  • All the souvenir shops in one place. Nice products, friendly people ,little bargain and you buy !Very close to the Plaza de la cultura.
