One of the main characteristics of the square is the structure that has many steps as if it was an Aztec pyramid. The colours of the steps create a contrast with the surrounding buildings where the strong yellow colour from the National Museum stands out. It is important to highlight the buildings around it like the Blue Castle or the Casa Rosada.

In addition, the square has green leafy areas and a large fountain which gives life to the large cement structure. The square is located between the Central Avenue and 2nd Avenue.
