Walking from the Basilica to the statue is a real treat. It is a beautiful site in every way. The statue itself is magnificent. The walkway is lined with benches and appears to be a lover's lane with kissing couples everywhere. Caution: This location is in one of the most dangerous parts of town. Do hide valuables, cameras, phones, etc.... More

This place is nice to go with children or family. Children can take they're skates and play around. Two of the most representative churches in the city are at both ends, so is a must. Take your cautions for crowded places and is better to always visit mid afternoon, or at least before is goes too late in the night.
