I only visited very briefly around lunch time and again mid-morning the next day. On both occasions nobody was using the wash basins. Nevertheless a nice park (even better if you get a view of one of more of the volcanoes)

We always love visiting old washing houses. In India we call them ghats. This was on our morning walk to breakfast every day so we took lots of photos here!

Quaint, small park, where locals come to wash clothes and mingle. Near tiendas, bakeries and other necessities. Quiet respite.

Extremely well preserved and the architectural setting for it is very picturesque. The two churches, one still in use and fully restored and one in ruins anchor the park
