Follow in the footsteps of Guam's colonial rulers as you stroll through Plaza de Espana, the central square and main park space of the island's capital village. The plaza marks the site of the former governor's palace, used during the Spanish occupation. The complex was mostly destroyed in 1944 during heavy shelling. Today, you can admire the few surviving buildings--including the chocolate house and the garden house--or simply enjoy the lush nature that has partly reclaimed the historic site. Consider visiting early in the morning or late in the afternoon to avoid busloads of tourists who gather here during the middle of the day.

Plaza de Espana Reviews
ちょっとした公園です。 聖マリア大聖堂の隣りにあります。 向かえにはグアムミュージアムもあります。 道路に車を止めて見に行けば良いかと思います。 more »It is a little park. It is next to St. Mary's Cathedral. There is also the Guam Museum. I think it's a good idea to park your car on the road and go and see it.
スペイン統治時代に総督邸の有った場所で、今も官公庁が並んだグアムの中心です。 広いきれいな公園と、グアム博物館、ヨハネ・パウロ２世像があったりで、一応観光地になっています。その割に観光客はほとんどいません。 昔は島内観光ツアーで立ち寄りましたが、今は入っていないのでもしれませんね。 more »It is the center of Guam where the governor's residence was located during the Spanish rule and is still lined with government offices. There is a large beautiful park, the Guam Museum, and the statue of John Paul II, making it a tourist attraction. There are few tourists for that. I used to stop by for a sightseeing tour on the island, but now I can't.
Drove by many times but stopped in for the first time, very interesting historical spot. The Chocolate House is called that because in the late 1700's and 1800's they served the Governors guests hot chocolate there, very much worth stopping in to see!
Very beautiful historical place. The cathedral is there, the hagatna post office is close by, hagatna police precinct is close and one of the best thing is there is a affordable hot dog stand near by. There's drinks and chips available too. Awesome atmosphere.
