Spend some time on Plaza de Armas, the city's main square, lined with green trees and stately buildings. Situated on the site of the city's founding in 1549, the plaza features a large stone fountain by famed Chilean sculptor Samuel Roman. Enjoy the lively atmosphere of the place, roam the market stands selling everything from snacks to souvenirs, or enjoy the local buskers playing their songs. Relax in the shade of Chilean palms and cedars, or admire the architecture of important buildings around the square, such as the cathedral, administration building, and others. With our custom trip planner, La Serena attractions like Plaza de Armas can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
