Lonely Planet review

A rather nondescript banca (newspaper stand) by day transforms into a serious jam fest for blues bands certain nights of the week. It’s a great street scene, with folding chairs, vendors selling beer and the clash of electronically amplified chords firing up the blues-loving crowd. The schedule changes, so call before making the trip. At the time of writing, bands were playing on Friday night, starting at about 7pm or 8pm.
