Welcome to San Luis Potosí

A great place to wander through, the city's historic core is made up of numerous plazas and manicured parks that are linked by attractive pedestrian streets. Although not as striking as Zacatecas or Guanajuato, and definitely lacking the magic of San Miguel de Allende, this lively city's cultural elegance is reflected in its delightful colonial architecture, impressive theater and numerous excellent museums.

However, prior to that, many enterprising Chinese, most of them, rice traders trade goods in this market. It is because trading at those times, though simply conducted on a know-you basis and to some extent, barter-trade by nature relies heavily on the Pasig river. Pasig River passes very near this gate at Puerta del Parian making it convenient for carrying loads of rice and selling it to merchants in other parts of Manila.Duration: 10 minutes
