Get to the heart of the city's historic center at Parque Colon, a central square and popular meeting place. Frequented by locals and tourists alike, the park offers views of some of the town's architectural highlights, and features a central statue of Christopher Columbus, made in the late 19th century by French sculptor Ernest Gilbert. The square has a lively, bustling atmosphere, with hawkers, guides, taxi drivers, and many, many pigeons to watch from the comfort of the shade beneath a tree.
