A great place to sit and people watch. Walk through the buildings and a get a good feel of days gone by and how people used to live. There always seems to be a lot going on, but yet it remains peaceful.

Basically this is the "center of it all." After visiting the Malecon in Campeche, you must go here. You experience a lot of the history of Campeche by visiting this location.
