The Cathedral of Tegucigalps has undergone a restoration of its walls, dome and clock. Built in the 18th century, the clock in the Metropolitan Cathedral of Tegucigalpa, which was installed 133 years ago, started working again after it was repaired after being out of use for 72 years. The Guatemalan expert Antonio Ceron made clockwise and move back to the bells sounded to give time to the thousands of passersby who daily spend on the cathedral in the historic center of the Honduran capital.
Something very shocking, and quite disheartening-about Tegucigalpa is that most of its clothing stores are second hand. But it's not like the Fuencarral street shops of Madrid, where "second hand" means modern or chic. In Tegucigalpa clothing from the United States: are the "bales". What are the bales? It's clothing donated by Americans to "inhabitants of the third world." This clothing ends up being sold in these shops. When a store hangs the sign "open bale" in its window it means that the last bundle of clothes arrived from the United States ... Much to ponder, very disheartening.
This big plaza is safe during the day. In a city where 5 of the main arteries of the heart is an odyssey, in which you never know if the ending will be happy, and the square is an oasis of calmness. There are clothes stalls and a lovely church lit in purple tones which makes it a nice place to watch the sunset, never later than 9 in the evening! I recommend looking for accommodation close to the safe area.
