In 1944, during the liberation of Guam, majority of it was destroyed apart from three structures; the Chocolate House, the “Azotea” and the Almacen gates. The three remaining structures as well as the... More

We did a group walk through. We had a former National park ranger give us an I overview, but that was more than adequate.

We spent very little time here as it was full of bus loads of tourists. There are some historical relics and a few informational plaques to read.

So, at the Plaza de Expana there are 3 Poke Stops. There are a number of other stops and a Gym nearby also. During the height of the craze, there would be a couple hundred people playing. This is in the heart of Hagatna, and the site is rich with history and is within walking distance to other sites. It's... More

This is beside The Cathedral and can part of the Agana tour. Nothing really special but historical wise it is.

The Plaza de Espana is a must see in Hagatna. In the heart of the city, it has the ruins of the Governor's Palace, nice gardens, a Chocolate House, and a bandstand. You can read the signs to learn about its historical significance.

I went after a couple drinks at the nearby Mermaid Tavern and Grille (great beer!), and was weirded out by all the Pokemon Go players lounging around. It seems like an interesting historical place, just... too many locals, I guess?

The Plaza de espana has memories of war with Japanese. The government kept the walls, clean. Nice to see the location on a visit. Many local and military families cone here for picture taking session. It has a nice background. Nearby a Catholic Church and caves. A good stop to see.

My wife and I enjoyed walking through the historical Plaza de Espana. While there is not as much as I was hoping (much of what was once there has been torn down and replaced with much more simple structures), it was nice to feel a part of Guam's history. It is also the location of a battle between the American... More
