If you're in Plaza San Martin, you'll find that the Paseo de las Flores (Path of the Flowers) is the entrance to a vast labyrinth of strip malls. You can find just about anything here, including restaurants, McDonalds, bookstores, DVD stores, clothing stores and more.
As long as you're walking around you might as well enjoy some of the beautiful architecture. Unfortunately, that's about all you'll do if you happen to visit Paseo de las Flores on the weekend. They're not too big on making local shop owners work on Saturday and Sunday, which is a shame, because that's when they'd make the most money.
- It keeps their electricity bill low
- It stops people from using the mall as a shelter to stay away from the heat (Ouch!)
