  • beautiful place but alas impossible to visit the mausoleum, nor the presidential palace, you can see it by staying at 100 m, forget all photos with tripod the police will fall on you, it is forbidden.. the palace opens at 8 a.m., for a beautiful light to be there at 6 a.m. is good and we witness the defule of soldiers in front of the mausoleum
  • Beautiful example of colonial architecture. The bright yellow really stands out against the dreary great day. There are guards all over please do not asked to take a photo with the guards they will not say yes. My boyfriend asked and it was quite embarrassing. You cannot go inside.
