Plaza Colon and El Prado, Cochabamba
The Alameda Colonial de Ingavi, was transformed into today's Plaza Colon and the Prado Avenue which is often host to parades and urban recreation. Historically there was a small forest here that invited passers-by.
Today, it's a site for young couples to flirt, older folks to stroll, and home to several excellent restaurants and shopping areas.
Once called Alameda, the Prado once was home to many aspen trees (alamedas), the avenue today sports various restaurants and serves as a place for youth to meet up and hang out under the shade of venerable trees lining the broad thoroughfare.
