It is the center point of the square across the street from the Teatrico. The zig zag sidewalk in black and beige is symbolic of the Amazon & Rio Negro rivers.

The square is lined with cafes and restaurants, and there's never a shortage of people watching to be done. Find a table, order a drink, and watch the world go by.

The monument is not extraordinary but the place is nice for a walk and it is in front of the theatre. There is an ice cream shop in the corner with typical fruits of the region.
