  • It is a beautiful square with colonial buildings. To think that in this place in 1500 Pizarro (conquistadores of the worst species, represented by violence, oppression and destruction of an entire civilization) authorized with an edict the foundation of this city should make us think of how petty, petty and useless Man is. But so much so we are men too, and their stains are ours. To see the museum of weaving.
