Se puede pasear oda una tarde contemplando la arquitectura del lugar. También se puede tomar algo en al Café del Mar y contemplar ese gigante anaranjado y la puesta del sol. Muy recomendable. more »You can walk ode one afternoon contemplating the architecture of the place. You can also have a drink at Café del Mar and watch that orange giant and the sunset. Highly recommended.
A must for the old town. If you plan a walk though the old town don’t miss this spot. Beautiful Santo Domingo church and the statue “Gertrudis” by Fernando Botero are the main sights. It is believed that if you touch the statues breasts you’ll have lasting love relationships... bars and cafes are great places to take some time to appreciate this spot.
Awesome to visit. Got up close with some lovely army lads. Very friendly and had good food
