On the way to experience the innovative architecture of Iglesia el Rosario, our small tour group passed through Plaza Libertad (Liberty Park/Plaza). Unfortunately, the park is surrounded by busy streets, making it difficult to safely cross. The streets are lined with vendor booths that I understand from the guide block traffic on weekends. The plaza is populated with panhandlers, each claiming the need for bus fare. There are fountains and a central statue, but few trees and less seating. Paradoxically, the plaza commemorates liberty from economic oppression.
Having traveled to many Latin America cities with central plazas, this one pales in comparison. Take care when here during the day, and I don’t advise an after-dark visit.
